To make sure our buildings fit the care we provide, we're planning a series of improvements to our buildings. See details of our planned work below.
King's Health Partners Cancer Centre at Guy's
Our new cancer centre at Guy’s Hospital will allow us to provide the majority of our cancer services in new state of the art facilities. Services such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and outpatients will be combined with the Dimbleby Cancer Centre, a rehabilitation gym and drop in facilities to streamline a patient’s journey.
Good progress has continued on the Cancer Centre after planning was approved by Southwark Council in November 2012. This was followed by our contractors, Laing O’Rourke Construction, formally taking over the site in February 2013 in order to begin the demolition phase. Construction is expected to then start in summer 2013.

St Thomas' East Wing external refurbishment
The East Wing has been a feature of the Westminster skyline since the 1960s. As the home for our busy accident and emergency department, intensive care and cardiac wards, it's a crucial part of St Thomas'.
The refurbishment involves a full recladding of the external façade, providing energy savings and improved access.
We have appointed the Hopkins/ISG partnership to deliver the project and the detailed design process is underway. As the team also responsible for the Olympic Velodrome and the architects of our own Evelina Children's Hospital, we can expect both an exciting and a functional result. The design, which reflects the building's materials of slate, teak and stainless steel, also creates two full height atria for the building, enhancing the building internally and externally.

Guy's Tower Wing external refurbishment
The Guy's Tower refurbishment involves essential work to secure the future of the building, including concrete cleaning and repairs, installation of energy efficient cladding and replacing windows. The project will deliver a modern, energy efficient building, reduce our carbon footprint and maintain the Tower for the next generation.
The contractors, Balfour Beatty, began enabling works for the scheme in April 2012, marking the beginning of investment in the building which will renew the landmark tower over the next 18 months. The project will be completed in autumn 2013. You can watch work in progress via the project web cam below.
Mary Seacole memorial statue
Plans are underway to erect a bronze statue of Crimean war heroine and nursing icon Mary Seacole at St Thomas', funded by the Mary Seacole Memorial Statue Appeal.
There is a precedent for hosting memorials to key figures from history at St Thomas', and given her historic contributions to the field of nursing, a memorial to Mary Seacole is an appropriate addition to the cultural landscape of the hospital.
