The Royal Free radiotherapy department hosts a multi-professional team which encompasses the work of the clinical oncologists, therapeutic radiographers, radiotherapy review specialists, radiotherapy physicists and technologists. The department is a tertiary referral centre for the provision of specialist cancer services, providing radiotherapy services to a wide sector of London, as well as to private patients worldwide.
The department provides radical cancer treatments for breast cancer, urological cancer, skin cancer, thyroid, gastrointestinal cancers, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and lung cancers as well as palliative radiotherapy. In addition, we also treat some benign conditions. All modern radiotherapy techniques are available including image guided intensity modulated radiotherapy (IG-IMRT), volumetric arc therapy (VMAT), deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH), stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) and abdominal compression.
The department uses a range of equipment to plan and deliver highly accurate and safe radiotherapy treatment to patients. This includes a pre-treatment suite with mould room and radiotherapy CT scanner. There are 2 Varian TrueBeam linear accelerators (6MV and 10MV) with 3D and 4D cone beam CT (CBCT) image verification capabilities. The department also has an Xstrahl superficial unit for treating skin cancers. We work closely with the radiology department to enable access to MRI and PET-CT to enable image fusion facilitating high levels of precision when designing treatment plans.
The Radiotherapy service is accredited under ISO 9001:2015 for the way we manage our patients.
