Award Recognition Continues for The Stokes Centre, Royal Surrey County Hospital
December 02nd, 2020
The Stokes Centre for Urology continues to gain recognition in the RICS Social Impact Awards 2020, becoming the winner of the ‘South East Overall Project of the Year’, winner for the ‘South East’ and the ‘Grand Final Winner’ in the health category
These awards are in addition to becoming Highly Commended in the ‘Building Better Healthcare Awards’ in 2019.
The Stokes Centre for Urology was a collaboration between ‘The Prostate Project’ charity and the NHS to create a sector-leading new-build facility for treating prostate cancer patients. We worked alongside K2 Consultancy, ADP Architects, Clarkebond and Logan Construction in this award-winning project.
At the awards, the judges said “This project has a tremendous human and social impact. The centre treats prostate cancer patients in a newly built clinic. It consolidates specialist services and contains Europe’s largest theatre for brachytherapy, with a cure rate of over 90%. Referrals come from across the UK and internationally. This project provides a blueprint for how future funding between the NHS & charities, can collaborate, to provide facilities. In this case it started with one man’s (Colin Stokes MBE) wish to repay his successful cure from a cancer that is the third biggest cancer killer in the UK. The result is a state-of-the-art diagnostic facility which is world class as judged by its peers… it deserves a more detailed study for benchmarking the criteria by which we can explain our fundamental role in improving the lives of our communities.”
