STRUCTURE: The Royal Surrey County Hospital FT and Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust are working together to create a £10million radiotherapy unit at the East Surrey Hospital.

The development will mean patients from East Surrey, who currently travel to a cancer centre in Guildford for radiotherapy, will be able to get treatment much closer to home.

The unit, which is due to open by the end of 2013, will feature two state-of-the-art radiotherapy linear accelerators and a CT scanner.
