Cableflow bedhead containment systems have started to be installed in the new UCLH Phase 4 Proton Therapy Centre in Central London being constructed by Bouygues UK Limited.
The multi-million pound project is located at the north end of Tottenham Court Road on the site of the former Rosenheim Wing of UCLH and the adjacent Odeon site and will be linked to the existing UCLH site by a series of tunnel networks. The project is scheduled to open in 2020 and will provide more than 200 in-patient NHS beds plus a further 43 bed Private Patients facility.
This state-of-the-art project extends the Cableflow product footprint across the UCLH site to more than 1,500 in-patient and outpatient treatment positions in various buildings and includes a range of ancillary systems at the bedhead including medical equipment rails.
The new 11 storey hospital is part of a £250m investment in PBT therapy and will be home to one of only two NHS proton beam therapy (PBT) centres, and will become Europe’s largest centre for the treatment of blood disorders and a state of the art surgery service.
Having PBT available in the UK transforms treatment for children, teenagers and adults with hard to treat and complex cancers.
