The PAMELA project(Particle Accelerator For MEdical
Applications) currently consists of the design of a particle
therapy facility. The project, which is in the design phase,
contains Non-Scaling FFAG, particle accelerator capable
of rapid beam acceleration, giving a pulse repetition rate of
1kHz, far beyond that of a conventional synchrotron. To
realise the repetition rate, a key component of the accelerator
is the rf accelerating system. The combination of a high
energy gain per turn and a high repetition rate is a significant
challenge. In this paper, options for the rf system of
the proton ring and the status of development are presented.
