This exciting series delves into the world of radiotherapy by introducing what radiotherapy is and how it has developed over the years. We speak to the staff that are critical for the delivery of radiotherapy treatment today, and we hear about the history of radiotherapy since the 1970s. It is important to us that this content is shared in an accessible and easily-digestible manner, so we have created this series in partnership with our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Group. We are even lucky enough to have some of our patient representatives share their experiences of radiotherapy treatment.
All of the speakers in this series are part of the Radiotherapy Department at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, UK. They represent the many amazing people that make radiotherapy treatment possible for patients across South-East England. We hope that you enjoy this series and that you learn about the importance of radiotherapy as a treatment against cancer.
Radiotherapy is constantly evolving and developing over time. In the past three decades the way in which radiotherapy is delivered and what we know about radiation treatments have advanced considerably. So, what does the future hold?
In this series, we speak to experts to find out what is happening now in terms of developments in radiotherapy practice and to hear about new research that is still in its early stages. The highlight of this series is that we have our amazing Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) Group members asking the questions that are important to them and to the wider public. Your podcast host, Rachael Webster, will guide the questions and open up the floor to our PPIE members to share their experiences of radiotherapy treatment. We are lucky to be joined by so many wonderful people in this series and we hope that you have as much fun in listening as we did in recording.
