Multi-million pound plans for cancer centre

We’re delighted to say that our joint plans with Macmillan Cancer Support for a new multi-million pound cancer centre at the Friarage Hospital have been approved by Hambleton District Council.

North Yorkshire-based philanthropist Sir Robert Ogden is jointly funding the project with Macmillan.  This is his third similar project in partnership with the charity. The building would be known as the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

It is expected the building will cost in the region of £10 million, creating a modern, state-of-the-art facility for patients, carers and relatives. Facilities will include:

  • A chemotherapy treatment lounge with capacity to treat up to 35 patients a day
  • Complementary therapy facilities
  • Treatment and consulting rooms
  • A Macmillan cancer information and support centre
  • Supporting accommodation (including telemedicine facilities)
