Proton therapy: coming to the UK

In 2018, patients in the UK will have access to high-energy proton therapy on home soil, with the opening of government-funded proton therapy facilities at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Foundation Trust and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester. At the College of Radiographers’ Annual Radiotherapy Conference, held last week in Bristol, delegates heard about the latest developments in this ambitious project.
