To ask the Scottish Government how much it has spent on refereeing people for proton beam therapy in (a) the rest of the UK and (b) overseas in each of the last three years.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 28 March 2019

The amounts spent on Proton Beam Therapy overseas in each of the last three financial years were:

  • 2015-2016 - £1,440,780
  • 2016-2017 - £1,717,470
  • 2017-2018 - £1,424,527

Total - £4,582,777

As the UK centres were not operational over this period no monies were spent on funding treatment at those centres.
