Over the last few years we have won a massive investment for state of the art equipment for Cheltenham’s radiology department.
Now Alex is campaigning for a new Gloucestershire Cancer Institute at Cheltenham General Hospital.
Our brilliant oncology team are putting together plans for a brand new 3-storey hospital wing. This will provide cutting-edge Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy, new consulting rooms and the potential for a pelvic resection centre and robotic cancer resection centre.
Out of 48 identified leading causes of death, the top causes of death in Gloucestershire was cancer. Gloucestershire Trust’s cancer service already provides care for a population of over one million.
A dedicated new wing will be a major step forward in the treatment of this terrible disease. It would support earlier screening, allow faster diagnosis and referral, and improve treatment for people living with and beyond cancer.
This flagship investment will provide a clear statement of intent for the long-term future of Cheltenham General Hospital as a Regional Cancer Centre
Although the project is still in the early stages, a strategic outline case has been submitted.
Now Alex wants your help to make the case to the new Prime Minister.
During the campaign to save Cheltenham’s A&E, he collected over 20,000 signatures from local people. With your support Alex will be able to show that there is local backing for the GCI plans.
