Prioritise cancer centre

A letter to Editor states: “The planned radiotherapy centre at Swindon’s Great Western Hospital is badly needed, but when the plans were first announced a few years ago I never dreamed that we would have to pay for it ourselves through a charitable appeal. Cancer treatment is, or ought to be, at the very core of the services that the NHS provides and it is shameful that the NHS locally does not appear to have the funds to pay for the facility itself.”
