OVERVIEW

Stoke Centre for Urology

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. The centre consolidates many specialist services (diagnosis, treatment, recovery, outpatients and research) under one roof, creating a ‘one-team’ approach, leading to enhanced patient care.        

Getting the patient experience right was crucial. To minimise the anxiety of patients and maximise their wellbeing, a focus was placed on creating a welcoming, comfortable and professional environment. Strong levels of natural daylight, double height paces, air conditioning throughout and products/materials with limited Volatile Organic Compounds all contribute to the therapeutic environment.

For staff, the design promotes teamwork and the sharing of research with other clinical professionals. Having a well-designed space means staff want to take ownership of it and enjoy working there too.

The centre is now attracting referrals from across the UK and internationally, and has plans to collobreate with the nearby University of Surrey to support its ongoing research into prostrate cancer.
