CancerPartnersUK medical director Professor Karol Sikora with Spire Portsmouth hospital director Heather Dob, CancerPartnersUK ceo Rupert Cockcroft, first patient Suzette Smith, Sir Ranulph Fiennes and CancerPartnersUK non-executive director David Porter.
A new CancerPartnersUK image guided radiotherapy centre in Havant was officially opened by explorer and adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes Bt OBE, together with the centre’s first patient, Suzette Smith.
The centre is the first unit of its type outside London to provide access to high tech radiotherapy treatments on the same site as the private hospital where patients are already receiving treatment.
It has been designed and built by a group of cancer experts to provide seamless cancer care for patients and will be run by specialist cancer clinicians.
The first centre has been opened at Spire Portsmouth Hospital as a partnership between CancerPartnersUK and Spire Healthcare.
