New surgical robot now treating prostate cancer patients

NHSMen diagnosed with early prostate cancer in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire are now benefitting from treatment using a new high-tech surgical robot at Cheltenham General Hospital (CGH).

To mark this significant move forward in the treatment of prostate cancer in our county, an event is taking place at CGH on 20th June at 2.30pm.

The purchase of the robot was made possible by a £1.2m investment by our Trust, with significant input from local charity Robocap to the tune of £350,000. The contribution of charity partners is always highly valued by our Trust and we are extremely grateful for the huge amount of effort, fundraising and support of the Robocap Charity, its Patron Dame Janet Trotter, Trustees and the people of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and South Worcestershire who helped to raise this significant proportion of the funds.
