The radiotherapy department opened in the Queen’s Centre in 2008 and serves a catchment area that includes the whole of East Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. The department receives around 2800 patient referrals and delivers 36400 radiotherapy treatments every year.
We are a leading department in the UK, delivering world class radiotherapy cancer treatment on six modern state of the art treatment machines called “linear accelerators”. Our machines have advanced x-ray imaging capabilities that enable very accurate treatment delivery through precise targeting and verification of tumour position.
Did you know...?
In 2019 we becamse the first centre in the North of England and only the second nationally to commission the use of a Halcyon linear Accelerator. This type of machine is designed to provide a better patient experience, including quicker treatment times, quieter running and easier access for patients.
In 2013 the government set a monthly target of 24% for increasing the utilisation of IMRT for radically planned radiotherapy across all radiotherapy centres in England and Wales. Here in Hull we have consistently achieved and exceeded this target.
We are committed to the highest standards of radiotherapy quality and care, delivering safe accurate treatment in a timely manner. The whole radiotherapy service is BS EN 9001:2015 certified and the localisation service is BS70000:2017 accredited. Further details can be found here:
