Trust’s cancer fight gets equipment boost

It is to become the first NHS trust in the country to take delivery of an advanced “Radixact radiotherapy delivery system” to help those suffering from breast, prostate, colo-rectal, head and neck cancers. It also plays a part in the preparation of patients for complex procedures like bone marrow transplants. Preparation for the arrival of the £1.9m system, which involves an upgrade of the current treatment room at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, has started and the machine is expected to go live in June.
