NHS AfC: Band 7 (or Band 6 for less qualified applicants)

We are looking for an enthusiastic treatment planning radiographer or dosimetrist with experience in advanced radiotherapy treatment planning to join the Radiotherapy Treatment Planning team within the Clinical Radiotherapy Physics group at the Sutton branch of the Hospital. The post holder will significantly contribute to the development and expansion of our existing SABR service, including implementing new treatment sites and advanced techniques. In addition, they will routinely participate in treatment planning and plan checking, working closely with the clinical and radiotherapy teams.

Applicants should be registered with the HCPC, AHCS, or equivalent. Applicants should have a good honours degree in radiography, dosimetry or a closely related discipline, an MSc related to Radiotherapy is desirable.

Treatment planning is performed using the RayStation treatment planning system, with most treatment sites planned using a VMAT technique. We have established workflows for adaptive radiotherapy (plan of the day), 4DCT, and breath hold techniques. Multimodality imaging (CT, PET-CT, MR) is used for planning of several treatment sites. Recent clinical development work has included expanding adaptive radiotherapy planning, expanding the existing SABR service, and introducing advanced techniques such as robust planning. The Radiotherapy Department in Sutton has 7 Elekta linacs (5 Agility and 2 MLCi) and an Elekta Unity MR-Linac is now in clinical use. Additional equipment includes EPID portal imaging, in-vivo EPID dosimetry, and Cone Beam CT.
