Cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy treatment at Rosemere Cancer Centre are set for brighter skies on the horizon after virtual sky ceiling panels have been fitted above the treatment bed in the newly refurbished LA2 radiotherapy room.Advertisement
The panels have cost the centre £3,200.
Research shows that being able to look at wispy white clouds as they gently
breeze through sunny blue skies can help to relax patients during their
treatment and make them feel more positive.

Dan Hill, chief officer of Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “Approximately
300 patients a day from throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria come to
the cancer centre to undergo radiotherapy treatment.
“With the installation of ceiling panels in LA2, it means that all but one of the centre’s eight radiotherapy treatment rooms now share the same uplifting view and we hope it won’t be too long before we can fund our final virtual sky to make it a full house.”
