Radiotherapy Unit campaigns for specialist status

Hereford’s would-be Lib Dem MP Lucy Hurds visited the new radiotherapy unit at Hereford County Hospital today with Welsh Lib Dem leader Kirsty Williams, Assembly Member for Brecon and Radnor.

Lucy Hurds said “I am delighted to see this much-needed facility open and running at full capacity for the benefit of so many local people who are now spared the ordeal of regular trips to Cheltenham.”

She added “I was interested to learn that they are campaigning for recognition by the NHS as a specialist radiotherapy unit. The unit has the latest available technology and fully qualified staff. They would like to be able to offer specialist treatment that is still currently only available in Birmingham and other designated centres.”
