Proton beam therapy centres to be built

Work to build two centres for specialist cancer treatment has been welcomed by Ashya King’s grandmother. The NHS has announced that two businesses have been assigned to start work on building two proton beam therapy centres in the UK. The treatment is currently not available in this country, and the King family made the headlines last year when parents Brett and Naghemeh took their five-year-old son Ashya to the Czech Republic so he could have the treatment.
