Proton beam centres ‘to treat 1,500 patients a year’

Two new NHS proton beam therapy facilities could offer treatment to 1,500 cancer patients a year when they open in the next few years. A ceremony at University College London Hospital (UCLH) – attended by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt – marked the start of construction at one of the sites, due to open in 2019. The other, at the Christie cancer centre in Manchester, will start taking patients in 2018.
