Duke of Kent to tour new Urology Centre at Royal Surrey

Royalty comes to Guildford today - to the Royal Surrey Hospital. 

The Duke of Kent will be touring the new Stokes Centre for Urology this morning its grand opening at the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

It is hoped the new £5.5 million facility will stand as a national centre of excellence, offering reduced waiting times and fewer diagnosis delays.

The new centre was jointly funded by the Trust and the Prostate Project charity.

It takes its name from Colin Stokes, co-founder of the charity alongside John Davies, who was the consultant who treated Colin when he had prostate cancer.

Last year, President of The Prostate Project, Tim Sharp, told Eagle:

"All the highly talented and skilled technicians, clinicians and scientists will be able to work so much more efficiently.

"The Royal Surrey is bursting at the seams, it's dealing with more and more patients every year.

"It can't handle what it has got and this will create a great release valve and enable all of them to work so much more effectively."

Prostate cancer has become the biggest cancer killer of men - killing one man every hour.

But Tim said the centre is not just for men:

"It's for anybody with urological problems, men women and children.

Tim, Colin and Professor of Urology Stephen Langley won last year's Special award, at Eagle Radio Local Heroes Awards, for their campaign to raise funds for the Stokes Centre for Urology.
