Churchill Surgical Unit Appeal

The newly-refurbished Day Surgery Unit at the Churchill Hospital officially opened in May 2017.

The unit, which is based in the Cancer Centre, supports ten operating theatres where over 8,000 operations are performed each year. The majority of these patients will spend time in the Day Surgery Unit as they wait to be admitted for their operation, and afterwards when recovering.

The Trust invested £2.1 million to redevelop the Day Surgery Unit, which was designed to reduce stress and anxiety, with privacy and comfort in mind.

Sixty-three thousand pounds was raised by the Trust's Oxford Hospitals Charity team, through a combination of donations and fundraising events such as abseiling down the John Radcliffe Hospital.

There are six individual consultation rooms, two single rooms with en-suite facilities and two six-bed single-sex bays, in line with national same-sex standards.

The reception area is bright and welcoming, and non-clinical and staff areas were also redeveloped.
