As a result, the National Health Service has so far received 73 new or upgraded linear accelerators, enabling the delivery of advanced treatment techniques and faster treatment times. From April 2019, NHS England will be establishing 11 Radiotherapy Networks to build on this investment and lead the development of services at a local level.
