Advanced therapy treatment centre meeting

Key members of the Midlands & Wales Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre (MW-ATTC) recently held their first meeting.

MW-ATTC will operate from four centres: University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB), Cardiff and Vale University Health Board, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and Nottingham University Hospital.
