After many years of planning, fundraising and construction, last week saw the official opening of the new Oxford University Hospitals Radiotherapy Centre @ Swindon.

Clinicians, patients and supporters from Oxford University Hospitals and Great Western Hospitals joined together, alongside building firm Sisk, for the official opening of the OUH Radiotherapy Centre @ Swindon.
 
The centre is said to have been long anticipated for thousands of local people undergoing treatment for cancer.
 
Building on site started in August 2020, and the ground-breaking ceremony taking place in October 2021.
 
Wednesday 22 June marked the official opening, ribbon cutting ceremony, and speeches from some of the people who have been instrumental in bringing radiotherapy to Swindon.
 
The ribbon was cut by two patients from Swindon, Fred Bassett and Sandra McGlone, alongside Liam Coleman, Chairman, Cat Weaver, Associate Director of Fundraising and Voluntary Services and senior representatives from OUH.
