Rutherford Centre


The Rutherford Centre is the UK’s first high-energy proton beam therapy centre. The treatment is a game changer in difficult to treat cancers.

The centres are managed by Proton Partners International, who are the forerunners in innovative cancer care and the leading developers of proton beam therapy centres in the UK and beyond.

In 2017 Rutherford opened their first UK centre in Newport, known as the Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales. South Wales became the first cancer centre in the UK to officially offer high-energy proton beam therapy, treating the first patient with proton therapy in the UK in April 2018.

To date, Rutherford has three cancer centres and a further four new ones planned around the UK in the next four years.
