  The 180 MeV proton beam from the cyclotron at The Svedberg Laboratory is primarily used for a patient treatment. Because of the fact that the proton beam is needed only during a small fraction of time scheduled for the treatment, there is a possibility to divert the beam to another location to be used by a secondary user. The therapy staff (primary user) controls the beam switching process after an initial set-up which is done by the cyclotron operator. They have an interface that allows controlling the accelerator and the beam line in all aspects needed for performing the treatment. The cyclotron operator is involved only if any problem occurs. The secondary user has its own interface that allows a limited access to the accelerators control system. Using this interface it is possible to start and stop the beam when it is not used for the therapy, grant access to the experimental hall and monitor the beam properties. The tools and procedures for the beam sharing between the primary and the secondary user are presented in the paper.
