Multi-million pound plans for cancer centre

We have been working with Macmillan Cancer Support to develop proposals for a new multi-million pound cancer centre at the Friarage Hospital.

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.

A planning application for the development has now been submitted to Hambleton District Council and 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)
