Proton Beam Therapy

Protons in Manchester

We are working with partners The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation, and the Department of Health to bring the UK's first high energy proton beam therapy service to Manchester.

Proton beam therapy is a specialist form of radiotherapy which can very precisely target certain cancers, increasing success rates and reducing side-effects. Its introduction to the UK will bring the treatment closer to patients who currently have to travel abroad to receive it.

 

In autumn 2010, Manchester was chosen by the Department of Health to become one of the first areas to provide this cutting edge technology, which will be based at The Christie.

 

There are significant benefits of developing the service in Manchester.
