Chemotherapy Day Unit refurbishment

31st January 2018

Yesterday we welcomed Anna Walker, St George's Hospital Charity's Chair of Trustees, and Gillian Norton, Chair of St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to visit the  Trevor Howell Chemotherapy Day Unit a year on from its refurbishment.

The Trevor Howell Chemotherapy Day Unit refurbishment, funded by St George's Hospital Charity, transformed what was previously a cramped space into a spacious and bright area for patients and staff.

A member of staff said at the time: “Before the refurbishment, we had a real issue with ensuring privacy and dignity for our patients. Treatment chairs were cramped together, and there wasn’t much space for visitors.

“The refurbished unit is so much bigger and brighter. Each treatment chair has a curtain, meaning patients can have privacy during their treatment if they wish. Our staff also have much more room to carry out their tasks.”   

A patient said: “The unit looks great compared to before, but my experience here is really down to the staff. They are so helpful and the care is so good. This should be a sad place, but it isn’t – it’s excellent.”  

The day unit sees 200 patients each week for chemotherapy treatment.
