Cancer Hub officially opened at Epsom Hospital

Thanks to a generous grant from Epsom and St Helier Hospitals Charity, we’ve launched a new Cancer Hub, providing a dedicated space for our incredible Cancer Clinical Nurse Specialists to collaborate.

CNSs play a vital role in supporting patients and carers, offering expert care, emotional support, and guidance through treatment decisions. With the growing number of patients across Epsom and St Helier Hospitals, having a centralised hub ensures better coordination and accessibility for both staff and patients.

This new space allows our CNSs to work more efficiently, share best practices, and provide real-time support to patients. It’s a significant improvement that enhances the quality of care and patient experience.

Yesterday we celebrated this milestone, bringing together our charity, CNSs, wider Cancer Team, our Senior Leadership Team and patient forum to officially open the space.

James Blythe, Managing Director for Epsom and St Helier Hospitals said “I’m so proud to see the positive impact this space is having and will continue to have for our patients.”

We want to share our gratitude with the amazing donors who made this possible. Together, we’re making a difference in cancer care!


Toyota grant gives Magic Carpet Appeal some vroom!

We are delighted to announce that Toyota, which has its UK headquarters in Epsom, has granted a massive £1750 to its local hospital for Casey Ward’s Magic Carpet Appeal.

We love that Toyota’s tagline is ‘Let’s Go Places’ and its brand is all about inspiring a sense of adventure because the Magic Carpet experience will enable young patients to ‘go places’ too even while they’re in hospital – from fish ponds to solar systems to name but a few! It also comes with lots of exciting games and sensory applications to provide even more options for much needed distraction and entertainment!

Its’s great to have Toyota’s support and with other generous donations and pledges from the community, the appeal is on course to reach its target very soon!
