No. During 2017 we will submit our final business cases to the Welsh Government and our Local Health Board partners, seeking approval to develop the various projects.  These include the new Velindre Cancer Centre, a radiotherapy satellite centre and chemotherapy outreach centres.  We expect to have a decision from our partners by the end of 2017.

The preferred site is land, referred to locally as the northern meadows, located approximately 0.5 miles north east of the current Velindre Cancer Centre.

The incidence of cancer is forecast to increase by 2% per year. Soon it is expected that one in two of us, if born after 1960, will develop cancer in our lifetime.

As the incidence of cancer is forecast to increase, so too is the number of referrals to Velindre Cancer Centre. By 2025 we forecast to see an 18% increase in referrals along with a 48% increase in demand for our radiotherapy machines.

The current Velindre Cancer Centre site is approximately 3.69 hectares and it is ‘land locked’. This means that we do not have the necessary space to allow us to expand in future to provide treatment for the number of patients we expect to see.
