New cancer facility at Addenbrookes


03-05-2000

The latest phase in the refurbishment of cancer treatment facilities at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge has started.

Contractors are due to start building a new road around part of the site in preparation for a 5.4 million building to house two new radiotherapy machines.



The new oncology facility is expected to be ready in July next year to help cope with more than 4,000 new cancer patients a year.
