Velindre Cancer Centre: £4.6m for radiotherapy treatment

Some cancer patients whose condition had been considered inoperable will now be offered treatment after a £4.6m investment at a Cardiff hospital.

The Velindre Cancer Centre will use the Welsh government funding to provide radiotherapy treatment which trials show do not damage surrounding tissue.

The centre plans to treat about 290 patients a year and develop services.
