Abstract:
This talk gives an overview of the PAMELA project, which is an initiative to
introduce charged particle therapy using protons and carbon ions to the UK.

PAMELA, which is an acronym for Particle Accelerator for Medical
Applications, employs a novel accelerator concept, a so-called non-scaling,
non-linear FFAG. This colloquium briefly reviews the basic concept and gives
an overview of the status of the PAMELA project. A particular emphasis will
be on the superconducting main accelerator magnets, which feature a novel
helical winding scheme to create the required multipole field.
