An architectural competition has been launched to find a designer for a new cancer treatment centre at Guy's Hospital
Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust plans to build a new cancer treatment centre (CTC) at Guy's Hospital.
The CTC will be the first building in a phased development that will ultimately deliver an integrated cancer centre, combining clinical care with research.
The jury for the architectural competition, run by RIBA, will include architects Simon Allford and Spencer de Grey.
"Much recent research suggests that a building that lifts the spirits for those who use it will improve the rates of staff and patient attendance," says Simon Allford.
"The client's aim is that this project will prove this point."
The initiative is a collaboration betwee by Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London.
The deadline for application is 25 March and a preliminary briefing paper is available to download from www.architecture.com/competitions
