A new centre for surgery, cancer and proton beam therapy (PBT).
Funded by the UK Government, University College London Hospitals’ state-of-the-art centre is a key element of the United Kingdom’s National Strategy for Cancer. The new centre significantly enhances the UK’s capability in the treatment of complex cancers and improve outcomes for children and adult cancer sufferers.
The 37,000 square metre facility has four floors below ground and five floors above ground. The above ground floors are occupied by Europe’s largest blood disorder treatment centre and a short stay surgical service. Below ground houses the surgical theatres and the Proton Beam Therapy Centre incorporating the cyclotron and four treatment rooms (gantries).
Proton Beam Therapy is an advanced form of radiotherapy used for the treatment of complex and hard-to-treat cancers in children and adults. This new centre allows patients to receive PBT treatment for the first time in the UK, experiencing better outcomes and a lower risk of longer-term side effects.
