The ‘Journal’ can reveal how Altnagelvin’s new radiotherapy unit will look when complete. The £50million investment will be located beside and connected to the existing Cancer Unit, the Sperrin Suite.

Approximately 220 new posts across a range of specialities and disciplines will be created through the development of the new Unit, which will open in mid-2016. An information evening on the unit was hosted by the Trust at Altnagelvin last night. A further one is planned for Letterkenny General Hospital this evening.
