RUHX proving Cancer Care equipment for our community

RUHX is very proud to have helped fund the Dyson Cancer Centre that aims to create a centre with a therapeutic environment that can deliver clinical excellence, support research and support recovery.

As the RUH bath official trust charity for the past 25 years, RUHX has always been there supporting the hospital to treat and care for cancer patients.  And a lot of new and existing equipment in this new cancer centre and beyond has been provided by us and our generous supporters.

Medical equipment used to treat cancer at the RUH today, provided by RUHX, including some used in the new Dyson Cancer Centre includes:
  • New Gamma CT camera, critical in the diagnosis of and treatment planning of cancer. RUHX purchased a new GE Discovery 870DR for £600,000.  This will scan around 4,000 patients a year and will be on the second floor of the new centre
  • The hospitals first Surgical Robot. Costing £2.3 million, funded 100% by RUHX, used daily in Theatres (treating patients who will have been diagnosed in the new cancer centre) and treating Gynaecological, Colo-Rectal and Prostate cancer patients
  • New Artificial Intelligence Radiotherapy planning software.   This software provides oncologists with a precise contour of organs and more targeted radiation treatment meaning more time can be spent with patients and accurate treatment plans produced more easily and quickly
