The Chartwell Cancer Trust has generously provided funding for an upgrade to the Princess Royal University Hospital’s cancer Multi-Disciplinary Meeting (MDT) room. The room is used to host MDT meetings which are a regular forum where important decisions are made about the care and treatment of patients diagnosed with cancer.
This equipment upgrade will provide:
• The ability for all cancer patients’ radiology images, histopathology slides and other electronic records to be viewed robustly at each MDT meeting;
• Enhanced (high definition) imaging and pathology pictures which will enable improved decision making for cancer patients;
• Enhanced audio and visual connection for participants who connect via video conferencing enabling those participants to contribute to improved decision making for cancer patients;
• Enhanced connectivity enabling participants to video conference from multiple locations and for IT support to be provided remotely from anywhere within the organisation.
The Princess Royal University Hospital (as part of King’s College Hospital at Denmark Hill) serves patients from
Bromley, Lambeth, Southwark and beyond in South East London and Kent. Over 5,000 suspected or diagnosed cancer patients are discussed at Princess Royal cancer MDT meetings each year with treatment provided locally where appropriate. The much anticipated upgrade will greatly benefit all patients diagnosed with cancer within the community that we serve
