Radiotherapy workforce census summary report 2021

Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine
Year of publication
This census report finds that patients are receiving a just about ‘adequate’ service for their radiotherapy treatment but there is little room for training new staff or implementing the latest treatment technologies to improve care. There is also a struggle to recruit clinical technologists and there are often difficulties in finding maternity and sick cover, leaving services strained. Overall, there is a vacancy rate in the radiotherapy workforce of 8 per cent, with the greatest number of vacancies at entry level.
