Why the Urology Robot needs replacing

The major project for 2022 is to raise £500K towards a replacement robot for Urology. This requirement has raised questions, given the million-pound fundraising target of 2015 to install the original one. The reason the replacement is required is simply the success of the first robot. After years of continuous use and successful treatment of hundreds of patients, the old machine is breaking down beyond repair. Replacing this machine ensures that Eastbourne, a regional centre for Urology cancer, remains at the forefront of Urology Surgery and that our patients experience gold standard care with faster recovery times and reduced lengths of hospital stay. Additionally, the robot provides excellent opportunities for training so attracts future robotic surgeons to Eastbourne. It is therefore vital that we raise the funds to keep Urology working to the standard the first robot facilitated.
