The Maggie Keswick Jencks Cancer Caring Centres Trust is a company limited by guarantee Company Number: SC162451
The Royal Marsden treats 50,000 patients a year, in its hospitals in Chelsea, London and Sutton, Surrey. Many of these patients will face tough questions, exhausting treatment and difficult emotions that can range from anxiety to loneliness and isolation. These challenges affect not only those with cancer, but their family and friends too.
The opening of Maggie’s at The Royal Marsden will allow Maggie's to extend its support even further across London which sees over 28,000 cancer diagnoses a year. There is currently only one Maggie's Centre in west London, built within the grounds of Charing Cross Hospital. Another Maggie's Centre is planned at Barts Hospital in North East London and is due to open in November 2017.
Working in partnership with The Royal Marsden – a world-leading cancer centre specialising in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education – the new Maggie’s Centre will further enhance the patient care on offer at The Royal Marsden, marking another step forward in the redevelopment of The Royal Marsden’s Sutton site.
The Centre will be there for anyone and everyone affected by cancer, offering an enhanced and unique evidence-based programme of support delivered in an uplifting, non-clinical environment.
The Maggie’s Centre will be built in the grounds of The Royal Marsden, a peaceful place for people to drop in during and after treatment.
The new Centre will be at the heart of a natural landscape within the hospital grounds surrounded by a number of existing mature trees.
The Centre has been developed by Ab Rogers Design (ARD) from the inside out and focuses on creating the best visitor experience possible; internal courtyard gardens will provide both communal and private spaces, the building will be flooded with natural light with plentiful views over the beautiful gardens.

“Treating people with cancer is not just about treating their disease. At The Royal Marsden, we treat the whole person – their physical, emotional and psychological needs. A Maggie’s Centre at The Royal Marsden in Sutton will enable us to extend the level of non-clinical support in a beautiful environment and to benefit many of our patients.”
