State-of-the-art Northumberland cancer treatment centre set to create 50 jobs


Bot

A state-of-the-art cancer treatment centre is set to create 50 jobs when it opens in Northumberland this summer.

The Rutherford Cancer Centre, in Bedlington, is due to open later this year, creating a large number of jobs in clinical and administrative roles.

The centre is one of five being developed by Proton Partners International across the UK, after the company raised £200m to develop the facilities.

Part of the funding came from The Journal’s Let’s Grow programme.

Chris Land, centre manager at the Rurtherford Cancer Centre, said: “This centre is the result of substantial research and investment into the best way to treat specific types of cancer. We are going to provide proton therapy which has a number of advantages over more traditional treatments like radiotherapy as it targets the cancer specifically without damaging healthy tissue near it.

“As well as the healthcare benefits, our £38m North East centre will create up to 50 jobs with both clinical and administrative posts, and the construction project also created jobs for local workers.
