State-of-the-art cancer treatment comes to North Mid

State-of-the-art cancer treatment comes to North Mid

Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Hundreds of cancer patients in Enfield and Haringey are set to benefit from state-of-the-art cancer care thanks to new radiotherapy equipment now installed at North Middlesex University Hospital.

The Truebeam linear accelerator (LINAC) machine is an advanced radiotherapy treatment delivery system that targets tumours anywhere in the body with pinpoint accuracy with X-rays, and is up to four times faster than conventional radiotherapy equipment.

The £3 million investment in the technology and building work will allow our radiotherapy team to capture a tumour in motion, which has not been possible before. This allows the team to locate tumours better and improve the definition of the treatment areas they want to target.

The team at North Mid were joined by Eastenders and Strictly Come Dancing star Davood Ghadami, whose family member recently had treatment at the hospital, and local councillors from Enfield and Haringey at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially mark the installation of the machine, the third major upgrade in the last five years.  

Maria Kane, Chief Executive of North Middlesex University Hospital, said: “It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate this addition to our oncology department. The LINAC machine marks a step change in our cancer care and will help us deliver outstanding treatment care for local people.”

Justine Mooney, head of radiotherapy at North Middlesex University Hospital, said: “This is a fantastic milestone in our efforts to improve cancer outcomes for patients in our local community. We see over 1200 patients each year and they will now be able to benefit from our state-of-the-art equipment. It will allow us to treat patients sooner and with greater precision, helping to make the treatment experience better.”
