GWH radiotherapy unit another step nearer

Radiotherapy treatment at GWH for cancer patients is a step closer with confirmation by the Department of Health and Social Care of a loan to Oxford University Hospitals  (OUH) to allow the Satellite Radiotherapy Unit in Swindon to go ahead.

OUH will build and run the service as an extension to the world-class cancer service that it currently runs at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford. The service will be based at Great Western Hospital in Swindon, reducing travel for patients who need the specialist care.

Currently around 700 patients a year from Swindon and Wiltshire currently need to make the 70-plus mile round-trip to Oxford for each treatment. Most of these patients will now be able to have their radiotherapy treatment at the new unit.

Jason Dorsett is Chief Finance Officer at Oxford University Hospitals: “I am so pleased that at last we have been able to sort out the finances to make this much-wanted project a reality."

"I am very grateful to the people of Swindon and beyond for their patience and their generosity. Their contributions via GWH's Brighter Futures Charity have been so important, not just in terms of the finances, but also in showing the widespread support for this project."

Work on the £18.4 million development at the GWH site should begin by spring next year.
 
Dr Claire Hobbs is Head of Radiotherapy at Oxford University Hospitals: “We are very grateful to the Department of Health and Social Care for agreeing the funding model that will allow us to go ahead with our dream of bringing radiotherapy services closer to people’s homes.”
