Cancer treatment centre approved

Northumberland’s south east is to become the first place in England offering a topical and cutting-edge form of cancer treatment. The Proton Beam Therapy treatment centre, the second to be built by Proton Partners International in the UK, will be situated on the Earth Balance wellness site in Bomarsund and should be operational by 2017. The planning application for the state-of-the-art facility was unanimously approved on Tuesday by Northumberland County Council’s strategic planning committee.
