NHS radiotherapy changes could see more patients having modern treatment

In England, 52 radiotherapy centres provide radiotherapy for all cancer patients. A new NHS England plan wants to change how radiotherapy is provided across the country. And while the number of centres won’t change, services will be organised into 13 networks that manage specific areas. Important investment in radiotherapy has happened in the last few years, and positive changes have followed. But recent data shows that some patients still aren’t being treated with best type of radiotherapy for their cancer. That’s what has prompted the rethink from NHS England.
