Final seal of approval for Radiotherapy Centre

Posted: July 1, 2019

A message from Kevin McNamara, Director of Strategy and Community Services

Kevin McNamara 160"We're delighted that Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have today announced that the Department of Health and Social Care have given their final approval for the loan needed to kick start the project which will bring radiotherapy to Swindon. 

"Hundreds of local people generously donated to Brighter Futures' Radiotherapy Appeal which raised £2.9 million towards the specialist equipment needed to provide radiotherapy locally. This incredible contribution is so important and testament to the community spirit of Swindon and Wiltshire. 

"As an expansion of Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust's radiotherapy service, we will be working together to ensure building work can begin as soon as possible and expect the first spade in the ground in spring 2020."
