Iceland supermarket is the latest retailer to take up shop in Crawley’s Town Centre, bringing jobs and investment into the town.

Located on The Broadway in the unit previously occupied by Poundworld, the new store was officially opened on Tuesday by Councillor Peter Smith and Iceland Area Manager, Darren Austin, with residents and visitors soon making their way in, to pick up some supplies.

The addition of Iceland, follows a string of retailers moving into the town centre, including Peacocks who opened last November in Queens Square.

Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development, Councillor Peter Smith, said:

“The new store looks great and is a welcome addition to our ever growing retail offer here in Crawley.

 “Providing 26 jobs for local residents, with the added potential for more, is an extremely positive step towards the regeneration and economic growth of our town centre.”

The council – in partnership with West Sussex County Council and The Local Enterprise Partnership, is working towards revitalising the town centre under the multi-million pound Crawley Growth Programme. For more information, visit www.regeneratingcrawley.org.uk

Elekta (EKTA-B.ST) announces that its Elekta Unity magnetic resonance radiation therapy (MR/RT) system has been awarded the Institute of Physics (IOP) Business Innovation Award 2019.

The IOP Business Awards are the only awards recognizing companies in the UK and Ireland that have built success on the innovative application of physics. The Award is a tremendous mark of recognition that the recipient company is at the cutting edge of physics and business.

“We are honored to have received this prestigious award, which recognizes the technological tour-de-force that was achieved through the integration of high-field MR imaging and advanced linear accelerator technologies,” said Richard Hausmann, President and CEO, Elekta.

“Elekta Unity was designed to help cancer care teams deliver radiation therapy with unsurpassed visual confidence and to enable real-time personalization of cancer radiation therapy. Initial data from clinical sites around the world that are using Elekta Unity to treat patients indicate that we have achieved this critical objective.

I thank the members of the Elekta MR-Linac Consortium for the groundbreaking contributions they made to the technologic development of Elekta Unity.”

Elekta Unity combines a best-in-class linear accelerator with a high-field 1.5T MRI scanner and breakthrough real-time dose replanning software that are fully integrated to enable online adaptive radiotherapy and real-time target monitoring.

It offers real-time personalization through visualization of the treatment field with sub-millimeter resolution in five different ways; enabling instantaneous reaction to daily changes in anatomy; and allowing clinicians to see the tumor in three planes while treating the tumor with stereotactic precision.

This transforms care by offering the potential to reduce treatment margins with more certainty, expanding the treatment options available to patients and opening the door to assessing tumor response early in treatment.

Mr. Hausmann added, “This award underscores Elekta’s innovative spirit and ability to fuse its passion for cutting edge science with its fifty-year commitment to improving patient outcomes.”
