Exact plans for where, when and the range of disciplines that will make up this figure will depend on radiotherapy demand and capacity plans and delivery over the next five years as part of the implementation of the Scottish cancer strategy. Our Radiotherapy Sub-Group is now up and running and will make investment recommendations across the Scottish radiotherapy service.
