New Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital.
This weekend a new MRI machine and two new CT scanners will be lifted by crane into the Outpatients Village on the 5th floor of the new Cancer Centre at Guy’s Hospital.
They will provide imaging treatment for patients in the state-of-the-art building after it opens this autumn.
Due to the presence of a large crane and lorry there will be traffic management measures in place over the weekend – from 10pm on Friday 12 August to 6pm on Sunday 14 August:
- Great Maze Pond will be closed to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians from the junction of Snowsfields and Newcomen Street to the Guy’s Hospital main entrance car park
- patient transport and disabled vehicles, ambulances and emergency services will be diverted to the hospital main entrance car park via St Thomas Street and the northern end of Great Maze Pond
- the hospital main entrance car park will be closed to all vehicles except patient transport and disabled vehicles, ambulances and emergency services.
Access to Guy’s Hospital will be maintained at all times and clinical services on the Guy’s site will continue to operate as normal. Marshals will be on site to direct patients and visitors, and maintain traffic flow.
The Cancer Centre has been designed for Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust by architect Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and specialist healthcare architect Stantec. Arup provided integrated design engineering services. Main contractor Laing O’Rourke built the Centre and led the project team.
