Construction work on our brand-new Radiotherapy Centre is now underway. The new Radiotherapy Centre, which will be located adjacent to the Cancer Centre, will complete the cancer services offering available at MKUH, improving access to healthcare for Milton Keynes residents.
Currently, patients in Milton Keynes have to travel to neighbouring hospitals for Radiotherapy treatment, with Oxford University Hospitals (OUH) being the local specialist site. This new facility, which is being delivered in partnership with OUH, will ensure patients will no longer have to make long journeys to receive their care, enabling them to have their treatment closer to home.
Once complete, the Radiotherapy Centre will house two state-of-the-art medical linear accelerator (Linac) bunkers and will include a main reception, consultation rooms and a CT scanner area. Direct internal access from the Cancer Centre will also be available, allowing patients to move between the two facilities as part of their treatment.
Throughout the construction period, there will be some disruption to access. We will work closely with our contractors Morgan Sindall to minimise any disruption as much as possible.
Construction work on the Radiotherapy Centre is due to be completed in Spring 2024.
