Hereford Satellite Radiotherapy Unit

Herefordshire is to get a new, purpose-built radiotherapy unit – ending the ‘misery miles’ for cancer patients who currently need to travel to Cheltenham General Hospital for this life-saving treatment.

Our Trust successfully bid for additional NHS funds to design, build, staff and manage a new £7.7-million satellite radiotherapy facility at Hereford Hospital.
