I find it tragic when I read about children with cancer in the news. One way of treating some cases is to use radiation, beams of protons, which attack tumours but not healthy tissue. This treatment is not new, so I find it surprising that the UK is only just ready to catch up with the rest of Europe and bring it into NHS hospitals.
Doctors are pleased, as we currently have to send children with brain cancer abroad. I hope this move eases suffering and saves the NHS time and money.
