Abstract

Guidance on the management and governance of additional radiotherapy capacity summarises the practical issues to be considered in developing a new radiotherapy service and describes the service models that have been developed. It should support and inform those with responsibility for commissioning and providing additional radiotherapy capacity. 

This document is a joint publication from the three professional bodies involved in the provision of radiotherapy services – The Royal College of Radiologist, the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM). As guidance produced by the three professional bodies, this is applicable to the whole of the UK and to any provider, either in the NHS or private sector.
