The Radiotherapy Team
There are many professionals involved in the planning and delivery of a course of radiotherapy. The Consultant Radiation Oncologist will decide on the exact course of radiotherapy suited to you individually. The planning process is overseen by the Consultant Radiation Oncologist in collaboration with the physics and planning staff and Radiation Therapists once a plan is complete. All the planning data is electronically transferred to the Radiation Therapists for quality assurance checks before treatment can commence. The Radiation Therapists are responsible for delivery of treatment on a daily basis. Patients are monitored closely throughout treatment by Radiation Therapists (daily), Consultant Radiation Oncologist (weekly), along with Physicists/Dosimetrists.
