About Us

Construction of the new Dyson Cancer Centre at the RUH has been underway since 2021 and we are now entering the final stages of the project. We have a revised opening date of spring 2024, due to delays during the summer. We are sorry for any disappointment this will cause for our patients, staff and community and we will continue to provide high quality care from our current facilities at the RUH until the new centre is ready.

Our latest progress update for October 2023 is available here:
We're building a new Cancer Centre at the RUH. The Dyson Cancer Centre will help transform the care we provide for patients, families and carers and provide a nurturing and therapeutic environment, reducing stress and anxiety and promoting health and welbeing.

Scheduled to open for patients in early 2024, the new Centre will be located next to the main entrance of the RUH and will bring the majority of the RUH's cancer services, including research teams, under one roof.

We're making great progress. Watch our stakeholder event for the latest on project progress, art and interior design plan.
