A SPECIALIST cancer treatment group, which began with its first centre in Havant five years ago, has been named as one of Britain’s best performing firms.

It has been listed on The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100.

The South Downs cancer centre, which is based in the grounds of Spire Portsmouth Hospital, provides advanced treatments and is part of a growing network of centres run by Cancer Partners UK.

Cancer Partners UK has been ranked 33rd on the league table, partly because of its ambitious drive to make advanced cancer treatments more accessible to patients across the UK.

Staff numbers have increased more than four-fold in the past three years and South Downs centre manager Jacqui Dorney said: ‘The opening of our centre in Havant marked the start of things five years ago and Cancer Partners UK’s continued investment in new centres across the UK means more and more patients will have access to the latest technologies and cancer care services.’
