GUY’S CANCER CENTRE
Our Team was responsible for delivering Programme and Project Management, Cost Management, Risk Management, Benefits Mapping and Monitoring, Contract Administration (NEC3), Healthcare Planning and Business Case writing on this prestigous new development. From the outset, the Trust had a clear vision for the new cancer centre – for it to be: • Patient-centred: patients at the heart of the services, improved access to care and an enhanced experience of care • Research-driven: cutting-edge, global expert, latest technologies to bring new treatments from the laboratory to our patients, leading in the discovery of cause, prevention, treatment and cure for cancer • Clinically-led: through innovation and excellence in
We developed a procurement strategy focused on seeking World Class designers to provide the innovation and ideas necessary to successfully deliver the project objectives. Through a Design Competition, a contractor-led Design Team was selected, and which included internationally renowned architect Sir Richard Rogers of Rogers, Stirk, Harbour and Partners. Their innovative design included a unique stacked ‘Villages’ concept, each with its own distinct identity relating to a particular patient need. Each self-contained village reflects a key journey and places accommodation in the most simple and logical route for the patient. The design is also flexible enough to adapt to any future changes. The new Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital is not only innovative in its design response to the clinical brief, it was also being designed to facilitate Service Transformation. This was achieved by a whole Project Team focus on Benefits Realisation as well as testing the developing design in terms of patient and staff experience and perception before it was built. Patients have been at the heart of planning the new Cancer Centre, helping us to develop a centre that is calm, uplifting and well planned. The Patient Reference Group for the Cancer Centre was involved in the design of the building, the location of services and the art works that feature throughout the Centre. The group has been recognised nationally for its work. For example, they asked us to put the radiotherapy suite – traditionally found in the basement because the room needs a protective lining – on a higher floor. We found a way to do it. Now our patients have a light and bright environment where they receive treatment. Patient Experience - Designing in partnership
