Cancer Centre takes a step closer to completion

James Brokenshire has welcomed the news that the application to build a new state-of-the-art Cancer Centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital has been granted following a meeting of Bexley Council’s Planning Committee last night. The news marks another step towards the realisation of the development, due to be completed by the end of 2015.

The new centre will provide local cancer patients with access to both chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments closer to home in custom-designed treatment suites. When completed the centre will provide more than 16,000 radiotherapy and 4,600 chemotherapy treatments per year.

Commenting James said:  “The decision to grant planning permission marks a further significant milestone for the new Cancer Centre. It is important that momentum is maintained to see this important new facility at Queen Mary’s completed on schedule by the end of the next year.”
