Located in the heart of London, our new eleven storey building will be home to one of only two NHS proton beam therapy (PBT) centres in the UK – the other centre is being built at The Christie in Manchester.
PBT is an advanced form of radiotherapy used for the treatment of complex and hard-to-treat cancers in children and adults. Currently, patients have to travel abroad for PBT, but from 2018 patients will benefit from local access to this advanced treatment at The Christie and from 2020 at UCLH, with potentially better outcomes and a lower risk of longer term side effects.
In the floors above the PBT centre we are developing Europe’s largest blood disorder treatment centre and a short stay surgical service.
Moments away from University College Hospital, the Macmillan Cancer Centre and UCL, the facility will be ideally located to ensure patients benefit from integrated pathways in a state-of-the-art building.
