Lane Fox REMEO Centre

Built on the edge of an acute hospital site but orientated to maximise views of neighbouring Ancient Woodland, the new Lane Fox REMEO Unit provides a therapeutic retreat, with a homely atmosphere, supported by cutting-edge technology and world-leading clinical expertise.

The unit is a high-tech 20-bed satellite centre to the world-renowned Lane Fox Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, London - national centre for management of chronic respiratory failure. It is the UK’s first purpose-built centre to wean respiratory patients from invasive mechanical ventilation, thereby improving recovery rates and enabling patients to ‘return home’ (translation of the Latin ‘remeo’). The building was developed as part of a landmark public-private partnership between Guys and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust and BOC Limited.
