Altnagelvin Area Hospital, New Radiotherapy Unit

Altnagelvin Hospital’s new £50+million Radiotherapy Unit, which is due to open in 2016, will increase Radiotherapy capacity in Northern Ireland.

The Radiotherapy Unit at Altnagelvin is envisaged, not as a single building, but as interconnected clinical areas which are designed along the continuum of the “garden” that incorporates both the external existing landscape and the internal path of the patient’s journey. The intention is to create interior circulation spaces which have a “semi-external” feel. Patients will be connected visually to the outside as they move from one area of the building to the other along their treatment path.
