Radiotherapy Physics

The Radiotherapy Physics Department provides a scientific and technical support service to our Radiotherapy Department..

We’re situated in the Colney Centre. Radiotherapy Physics staff are Clinical Scientists (Physicists), Electronic Engineers, Mould Room Technicians and Support Staff.  All staff receive practical and theoretical instruction in addition to their academic qualifications to ensure that they are suitably trained to carry out the wide range of tasks they perform supporting radiotherapy treatments.
