First patient treated at new Basingstoke radiotherapy unit

The first patient to be treated in a new multi-million pound radiotherapy unit was welcomed to the centre this month. The new centre, at Basingstoke hospital, means that patients living locally will no longer have to make the 65-mile round trip to Southampton for radiotherapy treatment. Pauline Wren, from Oakley, was the first patient to benefit.
