The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust

Specialising in cancer diagnosis, treatment and education, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust has two main hospital sites in Chelsea and Surrey, as well as a day care centre within Kingston Hospital.

Within the Sutton area, there is a mobile chemotherapy unit operating which reduces the need for patients to visit hospital and allows them to be treated in their community. The trust also provides community health care services to the London borough of Sutton. In the field of research, the trust works with The Institute of Cancer Research to improve the knowledge and treatment of all cancers.
