Who is eligible for treatment at Rutherford Cancer Centres?

Rutherford Cancer Centres provide services for private cancer treatment in the UK for patients under medical insurance or patients wishing to self-pay. Currently, only adult NHS patients in South Wales, subject to approval, are eligible for proton beam therapy treatment at the  Rutherford Cancer Centre South in Wales. As the Rutherford Cancer Centres network continues to expand in the UK, there may be opportunities to increase our offering of proton beam therapy treatment to NHS patients.

Proton Beam Therapy

Proton beam therapy is an advanced form of external radiotherapy that uses high-energy proton beams instead of photon x-ray beams or electrons. Carefully measured doses of protons are delivered to the precise area needing treatment, using the latest IBA ProteusONE technology. This ensures that the delivery of proton beam therapy is highly accurate and prevents the risk of radiation reaching surrounding healthy tissue.

Radiotherapy is used to kill and destroy cancer cells. It utilises radiation in the form of high-energy x-rays, known as photons, to kill and damage the cancerous cells and prevent their growth and reproduction. It can be used as a non-surgical option to treat cancer, and it can also be used to shrink a tumour or in combination with other treatments.

Immunotherapy is a targeted type of treatment that boosts the patient’s natural defence, the immune system, and enables it to find and destroy cancer cells found in the body. At Rutherford Cancer Centres, we use several different types of immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer, in order to prevent cells growing and replicating or spreading around the body.
