Sheila is co-lead director of our London studio with expertise in the design of complex Healthcare and Laboratory projects such as Proton Beam Therapy Facilities, Radio Pharmaceutical, Cyclotron and Nuclear Medicine.
Proton Beam Therapy, a new world-leading radiotherapy for cancer patients, will be provided below ground and a state-of-the-art patient facility including a short stay surgical unit with inpatient beds and operating theatres will be built above ground.
The decision is a considerable milestone for this substantial and complex project that will end the need for UK children to travel to the US for life-saving treatment and, with a sister unit at The Christie Hospital in Manchester, will treat the most paediatric patients in the world.
The centre is expected to start on site in spring 2015, with completion due in 2018.
