It serves a population of 2.8m, and has clinical links with 16 hospitals in five surrounding health board areas.

The Beatson is Scotlandís largest cancer centre and the second-largest in the UK. As a result, the workload is varied - each year, the Beatson team sees more than 8,000 new patients, and more than 20,000 courses of chemotherapy and over 6,500 courses of radiotherapy are administered.

Waiting times for radical treatment are among the lowest in the UK.
