Following an intensive nine-month development project, GenesisCare’s new outpatient and treatment centre has opened in Milton Keynes.
Staff at Linford Wood Medical Centre are welcoming patients for a range of outpatient services all supported by a state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging suite and operating theatre for minor procedures.
GenesisCare is the first independent provider globally to treat patients with the Elekta Versa HD, the most advanced external beam radiotherapy machine available. Cancer patients at Linford Wood Medical Centre will be among the first in the UK to benefit from the Versa HD’s technology which can reduce treatment time to less than one minute, and uses precise targeting to improve outcomes and vastly reduce the risk of side-effects.
Linford Wood Centre’s general manager, Gill Barnes, said: “We’ve had a lot of interest from patients and doctors over the last few months, and are delighted to finally be able to welcome them into the centre.
“We’ll be working with doctors in the region to develop dedicated services and clinics such as a multi-disciplinary women’s health clinic and a prostate practice.”
