The radiotherapy unit is based at location
D201 (level 2). On your first day, report to the reception on Lower
Ground 2. You can bring a friend or relative with you if you wish.
Some people find it helps to have someone else present when
receiving instructions and explanations. (Unfortunately, if you
come on hospital transport we cannot book a space on the ambulance
for an escort unless for medical reasons).
Radiotherapy open evenings
The radiotherapy open evening are held at 6.30pm on
the first Wednesday of every month. For more information or to
book please contact Jancis Kinsman, (0117) 342 2464 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Use of CCTV in radiotherapy
Radiotherapy treatment units and the CT and MRI
scanners use close-circuit television so that radiographers can
ensure patient safety during the delivery of their treatment or
scan. This is the only way of watching that a patient is still and
not experiencing any distress.
