About us

The Rutherford Cancer Centres are at the forefront of innovative cancer care with its UK network of centres

The Rutherford Cancer Centres operate a network of cancer centres nationally and internationally, providing all-encompassing cancer services for patients. Our vision is to transform cancer care for patients by providing personalised and supportive support.

Our first UK centre is located in Newport, the Rutherford Cancer Centre South Wales. In 2018 we opened two more centres: the Rutherford Cancer Centre North East in Bedlington, Northumberland and the Rutherford Cancer Centre Thames Valley in Shinfield, Reading.

We deliver high quality diagnostic imaging, chemotherapy, immunotherapy radiotherapy and in April 2018, we were the first in the UK to offer and deliver high-energy proton beam therapy treatment at our centre in South Wales. In 2019 proton beam therapy will be available at our centres in the North East and Thames Valley.

We are also building a fourth centre, the Rutherford Cancer Centre North West in Liverpool, which will open in 2019.

So we can provide the very best patient care and clinical excellence, our open centres are registered under Health Inspectorate Wales and the Care Quality Commission.

Our history

The centres have been named to reflect the renowned scientist Ernest Rutherford’s contribution in first identifying (1909-1919) and then naming the proton in 1920.

The Rutherford Cancer Centres are owned by Proton Partners International, a company committed to providing innovative cancer treatment. You can find out more by visiting the Proton Partners International website.
