We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the arrival of the new da Vinci surgical robot made possible through the fantastic efforts of our supporters who helped raise the £1.5 million to purchase it.
The robot was delivered to and unveiled at Addenbrooke’s on 5 July 2023 – the 75th anniversary of the NHS and even cut its own ribbon!
Our robot campaign in 2021 saw surgeons, clinicians, supporters, and fundraisers join together to raise funds in all sorts of ways to buy this clever kit, allowing thousands more patients undergoing surgery to experience less scarring, fewer risks, faster recovery times and quicker returns home.
Watch this short video of the celebrations and hear from our CEO, Shelly Thake, as she thanks supporters for making it all possible.
