Zeroing in on the issue. Treating the bad, saving the good. In 2018, NHS will open its doors to the Christie NHS Foundation Trust Proton Beam Therapy Centre, the first of two new centres in England delivering high-energy proton beam therapy (PBT). This advanced and innovative form of radiotherapy will enable the NHS to treat patients with some of the most complex forms of cancer, whilst reducing the potential long-term effects of conventional radiotherapy, which is particularly important when treating children. It will provide yet another service from one of Europes largest and most prestigious cancer care centres.
