Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

Cancer appeal

Eleven people at Addenbrooke’s face a new cancer diagnosis each and every day. As a UK leading cancer care specialist, we want to ensure that each of those patients has access to quality patient care.

We are launching our new cancer campaign to:

 - Improve outcomes through innovation and research

 - Improve the hospital experience

 - Improve support for patients.

Over the last five years, 6,000 supporters have raised an incredible £4,000,000 for cancer services at Addenbrooke's achieving the following:


An Outpatients garden, providing a quiet haven away from the bustling hospital environment

A state-of-the art surgical robot allowing prostate patients access to minimally invasive surgery

A modern, spacious Haematology Day Unit for patients with blood cancers allowing 200 more patients to be seen every month and to be treated closer to home in brighter and more spacious surroundings, with specialist equipment and reduced waiting times

2 ECP machines to treat the terrible side effects suffered by patients following bone marrow transplantation, thereby decreasing the risk of life-threatening infections and potential admissions to intensive care

A ‘Biopsee’ machine to more accurately diagnose and identify prostate cancer, providing vital information on the grade and stage of the cancer.

But, we need to do more.
