The Cancer Centre in Great Maze Pond opened to NHS patients last September and now the private unit which occupies the top floors of the building is also up and running.

The deal with HCA was crucial to the overall funding package for the state-of-the-art 160 million building.

From Monday this week all cancer services at London Bridge Hospital in Tooley Street have been transferred to the new centre which is known as 'London Bridge Hospital, Private Care at Guy's'.

It is equipped with 40 inpatient beds, 9 day surgery beds, a four bed intensive care unit, four integrated operating theatres, Da Vinci robot, 18 chemotherapy bays, x-ray, fluoroscopy, ultrasound and radiotherapy. The centre will specialise in a number of areas including urology, gynaecology and breast surgery.

"We are always working to provide the highest quality care across the London Bridge Hospital campus and the HCA UK group as a whole, so I am proud that this new facility will offer our patients state-of-the-art care and the latest technology in a location that is convenient for them," said Janene Madden, CEO of London Bridge Hospital.

"We are also proud to be associated with Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, a world leader in advancing medicine and care."

HCA's London Bridge Hospital campus also includes an outpatient clinic at The Shard.
