Progress on new cancer treatment unit ‘nothing short of scandalous’

Patients receiving radiotherapy have to travel to either Brighton, Portsmouth, Guildford, or Redhill with many one-way journeys exceeding the national guideline of 45 minutes. This is causing some patients to drop out of cancer treatment, with NHS England recognising parts of West Sussex are ‘poorly served’ by the current provision of radiotherapy services. However a business case is now being prepared to open a new unit at St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester.
