Radiation Therapists

Radiation therapists work with your Radiation Oncologist to plan your individualised radiation treatment and use complex equipment to deliver your radiation according to your treatment plan.  Radiation Therapists make up a large part of the team caring for you, providing you with support, advice and information throughout your treatment.
