Robot Appeal

Fundraising £1,000,000

£ 1,000,001 raised so far

A huge thank you to everyone who supported this appeal.

We are delighted that the Da Vinci XI surgical robot has been delivered to Wycombe hospital and is already being used to treat cancer patients across Bucks. In under two years we have finalised the £1 million appeal which will bring state of the art robotic surgery to our local hospitals.

The new Da Vinci XI robot will provide access to innovative technology and enhance patient results. Delivering better care and outcomes across a variety of complex procedures, cancer surgery, in the areas of colorectal (bowel and colon), urological (bladder, renal and prostate) and gynaecological (cervical and ovarian). As the surgeons become more experienced, the number of cancer specialisms will change along with the patient numbers.

“We are privileged that Scannappeal is raising money to ensure Buckinghamshire
Healthcare NHS Trust can offer world class robotic techniques to local patients. Not only does it mean patients can be treated closer to home, but operations will be less painful to recover from.
In-built high-tech features will make surgery safer, more precise and less invasive than laparoscopic surgery. This means patients will recovery more quickly with a smaller risk of serious complications and better long term cancer outcomes. Alongside this we will be able to recruit and retain highly skilled surgeons and establish the Trust as a world class elective treatment centre.

I cannot emphasise enough how much patients will benefit from having high calibre surgeons, working together in the three major tumour groups, with the latest technology to support them.”

Mr Arnold Goede, Consultant Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgeon
