UCLH Charity. Currently two new national NHS Proton Beam Therapy centres in Manchester and London are due to open in 2018 and 2020. This has been made possible by £250m of government funding, but we want to secure an additional funding to give our patients the best possible treatment and care.
High energy proton beam therapy (PBT) is a type of radiotherapy which offers enhanced precision in the targeting of tumours over conventional X-ray (photon) radiotherapy. This is important for patients with cancer close to important structures in the brain, spinal cord, eye or inner ear. Children, teenagers and young adults are those likely to benefit the most from PBT. Currently there are no high-energy PBT facilities in the UK, so patients have to be referred overseas for treatment. When the two new centres are operational, we will treat up to 1500 patients every year.
While the government is funding the development and the day-to-day running of the centre, the Trusts are relying on charitable donations to deliver world-leading care in a state of the art facility and help ensure that our patients have the least stressful journey through their treatment, especially given that most of them will be away from their wider families, communities and support networks.
