As the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre was preparing to expand to a third site, their Medical Physics department targeted improvement and innovation across the patient QA workflow while removing subjectivity and manual analysis from image-based machine QA.

In this issue, hear from one of their physicists how that decision has enabled Clatterbridge to bring organization, standardization and efficiency to their workflows.

Convergent thinking shapes Clatterbridge’s single-source strategy on radiotherapy QA

Continuous improvement, patient safety, automation and workflow efficiency: these are the operational reference points that underpin a comprehensive portfolio of clinical services at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust, one of the UK’s leading oncology programmes delivering non-surgical cancer care – radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy and gene therapy – to approximately 30,000 patients every year in Liverpool and the wider metropolitan region across the north-west of England.

In a recent interview with Physics World, Clatterbridge medical physicist, Greg Martin, M.Sc., discusses his team's experience partnering with Sun Nuclear and leveraging the SunCHECK Platform for standardized and efficient radiotherapy workflows.
