New Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital

London Bridge, London

Scheduled for completion in autumn 2016, the new Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Stantec, will be a hub for southeast London, providing specialist cancer services, training, development and research, which will help improve both cancer treatments and outcomes for patients. Applying a functional, state-of-the-art design, the centre will be divided into ‘zones’ or ‘villages’, with most of the related treatment facilities grouped together in one place. Embedded artwork to the fabric and function of the building, together with light and outdoor spaces from balconies within each village, will all play a key part in creating a positive experience for staff, patients and visitors.

A guided walk along London’s South Bank will be provided for delegates. A relaxing way to get to know the capital, this riverside tour offers several highlights, including a chance to discover the City’s origins in Roman times, and opportunities to view the Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, gothic churches, famous markets and pirate boats. The tour will also provide the chance to learn about many of the striking new buildings that are transforming London’s skyline.
