He told staff, senior figures from University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and private supporters of the Grafton, ‘It is a remarkable achievement, and, for what it’s worth, I can only offer my congratulations to all those who played such an important part, let alone all those genius physicists who actually understand how the Proton Beam Therapy works, which is truly remarkable.’ ”
