To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what proportion of the £130 million allocated to modernise radiotherapy has been spent on new linac machines for newly commissioned satellite centres.

The purpose of the £130 million modernisation fund was to upgrade or replace existing, older radiotherapy equipment. None of this funding was therefore spent on new equipment for newly commissioned satellite centres. Future funding decisions, including on new satellite centres, will be made after the fund ends in October 2018.
