The website is intended to be a resource for those interested in particle therapy. It aspires to become a useful access point to information about Particle Therapy for radiation oncologists, radiotherapists, tumour specialists, medical physicists, radiobiologists and others specialising in cancer treatment. You will notice that there is no special site for proton therapy. That is because proton therapy is very well represented and established worldwide and, with plans for NHS and private facilities well advanced, here in the UK.
This site should also prove helpful for patients, carers and the general reader with an interest in the treatment of certain tumour types with particles.
