WELSH fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium has secured a new project which aims to expand and improve the services for cancer patients in Gwent.

Dudley’s will be working with Kier Construction Limited on the new Radiotherapy Centre at Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny.

The new centre aims to provide radiotherapy services closer to the homes of residents in Gwent and those living in the north and east of the catchment area for Velindre Cancer Centre.

The centre will bring tremendous benefits to the local area by providing new and improved treatment for cancer patients, delivering safe radiotherapy services, and improving the capacity and efficiency of the service by delivering quicker and more targeted treatment.

The centre’s facilities will include a Radiotherapy Satellite with two operational Linac machines, radiotherapy planning, on-treatment review, on-treatment education, and a CT Simulator.

The fabricator will install Kawneer capped curtain walling, commercial doors, windows and doors, in addition to fire rated curtain walling and doors, and automatic opening windows on the build.
