Image Description

UCLH’s planning application for Phase 4 was approved by Camden Council planners on March 20. Pending approval by the Greater London Authority, it means building work can start in spring 2015.

Proton Beam Therapy, a new world-leading radiotherapy for cancer patients, will be provided below ground and a state-of-the-art patient facility including a short stay surgical unit with inpatient beds and operating theatres will be built above ground.
The decision is a considerable milestone for this substantial and complex project that will end the need for UK children to travel to the US for life-saving treatment and, with a sister unit at The Christie Hospital in Manchester, will treat the most paediatric patients in the world.

The centre is expected to start on site in spring 2015, with completion due in 2018.
