    The PAMELA (Particle Accelerator for MEdicaL
    Applications) project is to design an
    accelerator for proton and light ion therapy
    using non-scaling Fixed Field Alternating
    Gradient (FFAG) accelerators, as part of the
    CONFORM project, which is also constructing
    the EMMA electron model of a non-scaling
    FFAG at Daresbury. This paper presents
    an overview of the PAMELA design, and a
    discussion of the design goals and the principles
    used to arrive at a preliminary specification
    of the accelerator.
