Cancer centre build continues at pace


Work to deliver state of the art cancer services to the north of Cumbria is continuing with exciting milestones being reached.

The new cancer centre on the Cumberland Infirmary site in Carlisle is now water tight with the exterior works nearly finished, and the interior work is continuing at pace.

Phil Powell the Directorate Manager – Cancer Services and Clinical Haematology at Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals said:

“There have been 15,000 meters of IT cables installed and a direct connection between the cancer centre and Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals via an underground cable is set to be in place in the coming weeks. All the interior works are now continuing in a COVID secure way.

“The next milestone will be in the spring when the new Linear Accelerator will be installed.”

Gary Holmes, Regional Managing Director for GRAHAM who are the main contractors for the build, said:

“The cancer centre build continues to make significant progress and, despite the constraints of Covid-19, we remain on target to deliver this vital facility for its opening in autumn 2021.”

It is hoped that formal testing of the equipment and processes will begin in summer.

The centre, named the Northern Centre for Cancer Care, North Cumbria, will mean that patients across Cumbria will have access to state of the art cancer services at a centre which is close to home. The centre will be run by Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospital Trust, bringing together expertise from across the region and providing modern facilities for both staff and patients.

The multi million pounds centre is due to open in the autumn of 2021.
