Proton therapy unit bid27th May 2009
A hospital in the north-west is bidding to become the first centre in the UK to provide specialist treatment for brain tumours and rare cancers.
Plans have been put forward to create a £20m National Centre for Proton Therapy at the Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology on the Wirral in Merseyside. If successful, more than 1,400 patients across the country would benefit from proton therapy which is a precise form of radiation therapy as it pinpoints the cancer yet causes fewer side effects.
