London develops as global healthcare hub

A wave of private healthcare openings in London is underscoring the capital’s growing attraction as a global hub for medical treatment and specialist cancer expertise. A key impetus is demand from patients with more complex medical needs, particularly in oncology and neurology, as private hospitals become increasingly involved in more complex procedures. This has sparked sizeable investments in cancer treatment, including proton beam therapy, a type of radiotherapy that targets cancerous cells.
