The Christie NHS Foundation Trust
The Christie charity raises money for a range of projects and initiatives focusing on 4 main areas that deal with fighting cancer, research, care and treatment, education and extra patient services. All of which are above and beyond what the NHS provide enabling them to give their patients the best care and treatment possible.
All of the funds raised will go towards The Christie’s new outpatients’ facility within the Proton Beam Therapy Centre. The centre, which will be the first of its kind in the UK, has been designed to include a research room so that The Christie can use the proton beam not only to deliver lifesaving treatment to patients but to carry out ground-breaking research.
Every single piece of research The Christie carry out in their new proton research room will help them improve treatment for their patients.
One of their first pieces of research will be to investigate how they can deliver proton beam therapy more precisely and efficiently. This means even better treatments for patients and fewer side effects.
With the equipment in place, they will be able to better understand how protons interact, where they deposit their dose and how they can localise their damage to the tumour.
