Radiotherapy Equipment

 

The first ad-hoc surveys of radiotherapy services in 1999 (England) and then 2001 (England and Wales) were carried out by NATCANSAT on behalf of the Department of Health and proved to be invaluable to both clinical staff and local health service managers in focusing investment in Radiotherapy Services.

From 2002 onwards, NATCANSAT conducted further surveys of equipment on behalf of the Royal College of Radiologists, the Society of Radiographers and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine. These formed part of a wider multidisciplinary survey which also collected a set of specific data items on Clinical Oncologists, Therapy Radiographers, Radiotherapy Physicists & Clinical Technologists.

The results of the 2013 survey are now available in the national reports section of the radiotherapy publications page.
