star this property answer text <p>There are 25 providers, two of which work in partnership, of stereotactic body radiation therapy, which is called Stereotactic Ablative Radiotherapy (SABR). Currently, SABR is routinely commissioned to treat early non-small cell lung cancer in patients that are not suitable for surgery.</p><p> </p><p>SABR is currently restricted to these 25 centres in England whilst evidence of clinical effectiveness emerges. This is regularly reviewed by NHS England’s national specialised commissioning team and was last reviewed during 2016/17. It is expected that access will be reviewed again over the course of 2019/20 and 2020/21. However, this will be dependent on the emergence of clinical evidence and the development of new NHS England clinical commissioning policy.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In 2016/17, regional specialised commissioning teams undertook a review of local access to stereotactic ablative body radiotherapy (SABR) in the treatment of early non-small cell lung cancer for patients not suitable for surgery, in line with the current clinical commissioning policy, to ensure sufficient capacity. This review resulted in an increase from 17 SABR Centres in England to 25 and all centres underwent an external quality assurance process prior to commencing treatment delivery.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England is committed to expanding access to all forms of evidence based innovative radiotherapy. Such radiotherapy usually involves the highly targeted delivery of a higher radiation dose given in a smaller number of fractions. SABR is an example of this type of radiotherapy.</p><p> </p><p>To support this approach, NHS England has invested in both clinical trials, Commissioning through Evaluation and is also investing £130 million to modernise radiotherapy equipment. This means that new technologies able to deliver innovative treatments using image guidance at the time of treatment are gradually becoming widely available. NHS England is also investing in the establishment of 11 Radiotherapy Operational Delivery Networks which are expected to play an important role in driving the development of local radiotherapy services, including expanding access to innovative radiotherapy and clinical trial participation. At this stage, no estimate has been made of the numbers of radiotherapy centres that will be delivering SABR in either 2020 or 2029.</p>
