The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre in Northallerton

Every year, almost 600 people in the Northallerton area hear the devastating news they have cancer. Help us raise half a million pounds and help build The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

The new centre

We’re working with South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to build a cancer centre at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton, costing in the region of £10 million. State-of-the-art services will be housed under one roof and will include:

  • a chemotherapy treatment lounge with capacity to treat up to 35 patients a day
  • complementary therapy facilities
  • treatment and consulting rooms
  • a Macmillan cancer information and support centre

We’re very grateful to Yorkshire philanthropist, Sir Robert Ogden, who is jointly funding the project with Macmillan, and has given significant design input. The building, set to be completed in the summer of 2018, will be called The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre.

Show your support for this vital new building by making a donation. You’ll be helping to fund this incredible centre and supporting local people living with cancer.

Paul McCavana, Macmillan head of services for the North, said: 'This is a fantastic opportunity to provide a state-of-the art cancer care facility, all under one roof, for people in and around Northallerton. It will provide a space for patients to have all their needs assessed, not just physical and clinical, but their financial, emotional and psychological needs too. That will help ensure there’s a more joined up service.'

Help us raise half a million pounds

We would be delighted if you felt able to make a contribution to this important appeal. Any amount will help us improve the lives of local people affected by cancer, but here are some examples of what your donation could help us achieve:

  • £2,200 could cover the design costs of a small nursing station, allowing nursing time to be used as efficiently as possible.
  • £5,000 could furnish a quiet room, where patients and their families will be able to receive news about their cancer and treatment plans in private, and have time and space to ask questions and absorb information.
  • £10,000 could cover the costs of design and furnishing of a consulting examination room, where doctors will meet with patients to check their progress and discuss treatment plans.
  • £25,000 is half the cost of a counselling room, where people living with cancer will receive counselling to help them deal with the emotional impact of cancer.
  • £35,000 could cover the cost of a refreshment area in the waiting room, helping people to relax.
  • £45,000 could pay for one of the new chemotherapy treatment areas – to help make sure patients are cared for in comfort and have loved-ones by their side.
  • £53,000 would cover a 50% contribution to the main advice room in the new Macmillan cancer information and support centre that will be an integral part of improving patient experience and providing the vital non-medical support that people affected by cancer need.

There's a small chance we'll raise more than we need for this project, and if this happens then your gift will be used to provide much needed help and support to people living with cancer in the South Tees area.
