Royal Marsden reopens

8th January 2008

The Royal Marsden Hospital, a famous cancer hospital in London, has confirmed it is now open to outpatients, following a fire on 2 January.

Staff and patients had to vacate the hospital when a fire broke out on the fourth floor. The fire caused significant damage to the roof, two wards and five operating theatres.

Chief executive of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, Cally Palmer, said she was pleased that the hospital was able to reopen: "The fact that we can open our doors less than a week after this serious fire is a tribute to the immense hard work of the whole team."
