The Lanarkshire Beatson
This Centre, which operates as a satellite facility for the Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre in Glasgow, increases access to the state-of-the-art radiotherapy treatments and allows many more patients in the West of Scotland to be treated closer to home. It is be equipped with the most advanced technology to deliver the same world-class treatment and techniques currently provided at the Glasgow centre. This includes two new state-of-the-art linear accelerators, which deliver high-energy radiation to shrink tumours and kill cancer cells, with expansion space for a third machine, if required. The Centre also has a CT simulator to help plan radiotherapy treatment. This enables around 80 patients a day who require radiotherapy for lung, breast, prostate and rectal cancers to be treated.
