The Duke of Cambridge, President of The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, visited The Royal Marsden in Chelsea to learn about the psychological support being offered to staff, patients and their families.
The Royal Marsden opened its doors in 1851 as the world’s first hospital dedicated to cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education. Now, it is the largest and most comprehensive cancer centre in Europe, treating and seeing over 50,000 NHS and private patients every year.
The staff of the Royal Marsden work tirelessly to continue to make a national and global contribution to cancer research and treatment, so that more people are cured and quality of life is improved for those living with cancer. The Duke met staff to thank them for their incredible work.
