Proton Beam Therapy Facility in Bedlington Northumberland – one of the
first of its kind in the UK – will incorporate new cancer care treatment, MRI and
CT scanning facilities, together with cancer treatment via Lineac and Proton
This new treatment – which came to prominence when the parents of five-year-old Aysha King took him to Prague for the therapy – uses a high energy beam of proton instead of high energy X-rays, to deliver radiotherapy and is particularly effective for treating cancers in the head and the spine.
Having been awarded the full M&E services contract earlier this year, Lorne Stewart Engineering North East Region are currently working closely with Interserve Construction and Desco throughout the design and installation process, whilst ensuring a thorough understanding of project requirements to successfully deliver and exceed client expectations over the 31 week programme.
Tom McLaughlin, Managing Director of Lorne Stewart Engineering in Wynyard commented:
“Proton beam therapy is the way forward for cancer patients and this new facility will be a hub of excellence for advanced cancer treatment in the North of England and Scotland. We are delighted to be supporting Interserve Construction & Proton Partners International in helping to creating this new state-of-the-art cancer treatment centre in Northumberland.”
