Radiotherapy

The Radiotherapy department at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is the largest department of its type in the region.

The team provides a regional cancer centre service for the West Midlands and treats patients with rarer tumour types from other areas.

Our radiographers are highly skilled in a range of treatments, including:

  • total body irradiation prior to bone marrow transplant
  • treatment for childhood cancers
  • treatment for bone and muscle cancers. UHB is the only radiotherapy centre in the United Kingdom to treat extra corporeal bone
  • treatment for retinoblastoma – a tumour of the eye. UHB is only one of two centres in the United Kingdom to treat this condition
  • stereotactic radiosurgery

The department is also involved in a large number of national clinical trials and the patients are supported by research and site specialised radiographers.
