Will my hon. Friend take this opportunity to congratulate the managers and staff at the Clatterbridge centre for oncology, which several years ago introduced an innovative IT scheme enabling its nine new Linux scanners, which deliver radiotherapy, to be chosen and booked by people who are expecting treatment? That ensures that there is huge productivity, and waiting lists for radiotherapy, which used to be very long, have now plummeted. People are getting their cancer treatment at the time of their choice, much faster than ever before.

My family have experienced a very positive outcome as a result of the expertise, integrity and helpfulness of all the staff at Clattebridge Oncology Centre over te last five (plus ) years. This is obvoiously helped by the tools by which they complete their jobs - but it is the staff who do the hard and difficult work who need to be praised the most.
