The benefit of this is that treatment will be more successful and patients will have better outcomes, increasing survival rates for patients. Radiotherapy treatment significantly benefits 40% of cancer patients and in other developed countries over 60% of cancer patients receive Radiotherapy.

 AXREM Radiotherapy SFC wanted to highlight the potential benefit of engaging with the NHS Trusts to consider funding for Radiotherapy equipment within these CDH’s so that patients can move more swiftly from diagnosis to therapy.
