Following a successful partnership between NHS England and NHS Supply Chain (NHSSC), radiotherapy equipment has been replaced or upgraded at 38 cancer centres.

A lack of investment since the early 2000s meant that over 100 systems were either over their 10-year life span, or in simple need of an upgrade. With this in mind, a significant investment was required to ensure that patients across England had access to treatment using the latest technology.
