Centres selected to host cutting-edge cancer services

Around 1,500 cancer patients a year will benefit from a cutting edge cancer treatment – Proton Beam Therapy – that will be available in London and Manchester, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley has announced.

Up to £250 million will be invested by the NHS in building Proton Beam Therapy facilities at The Christie NHS Foundation Trust hospital in Manchester and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The Department of Health have set aside public capital for this scheme.
