The Beatson Cancer Centre in Glasgow is the second biggest in the UK. It treats a population of almost 3 million people across the West of Scotland, from Lanarkshire to Ayrshire and up to the Western Isles. A centre of excellence in cancer care, the Beatson offers state-of-the-art treatment, and is heavily involved in the development and trials of new cancer drugs. This three-part series tells the stories of patients undergoing treatment at the Beatson, shows the work of the medical staff, and reveals how cancer care has improved in leaps and bounds in the past decade.
