Radiation Therapist

Radiotherapy is at the core of the clinical treatments provided for cancer patients in St. Luke's Radiation Oncology Network.

The Radiotherapy Department provides radiation treatment to patients with a variety of serious diseases and occasionally benign conditions.

Radiotherapy is a multidisciplinary specialty. It involves complex equipment and procedures and many separate intensive treatment stages and processes. These are all necessary to ensure that the patient makes progress right from the initial clinical decision to receive treatment, through the treatment delivery itself and the subsequent follow-up and after care.

Using sophisticated radiotherapy technology, we are dedicated to providing the best quality of care and support for patients throughout their treatment programme.

Radiation therapists have a critical role in the delivery of radiotherapy treatment, safely and effectively.  Our primary focus at St. Luke's Radiation Oncology Network is to meet the individual needs of our patients throughout their treatment journey.

In the Radiotherapy Department, the radiation therapists on each treatment unit combine their great tradition of clinical expertise with close attention and care for each individual patient – each day, at each treatment.
