£2.4 million target reached!

£2.4 million target reached!
11 May 2018

The Rocky Appeal is delighted to announce that the appeal which has brought the life-saving Da Vinci Robot to Queen Alexandra Hospital has reached its huge target of £2.4 million!

Fundraising for robotic surgery began in 2014, and has since seen thousands of  people in the local community rally together to contribute to the campaign. The robot has so far performed over 1,000 surgeries on patients with a variety of conditions, from neurological to colorectal, and has helped PHT become a centre for excellence in Europe for robotic keyhole surgery.

Thanks to a sizeable donation by an anonymous donor, we are excited to announce that not only has the Da Vinci Robot target been achieved, but we are also able to purchase new remote-training equipment which will help PHT become a Centre of Excellence for robotic surgery training in Europe.

A HUGE thank you for all the incredible support The Rocky Appeal has received over the past 27 years from PHT Staff, their friends and family.
