Celebrating True Beam
16 February 2012

Around 100 people gathered at the Heath Road hospital yesterday to learn more about the radiotherapy machine True Beam.

The state-of-the-art machine is one of only two in the country and can target and deliver radiation more accurately to tumours. A hospital spokeswoman said the event was a celebration of the arrival of the new equipment and a chance to let patients, staff and visitors find out more
about the work that will be carried out as a result.

She said: “It was a fantastic event and allowed people to see behind the scenes of the whole Radiotherapy department.”
