Meet the Team

During your radiation therapy journey, you will be under the care of one of our 4 consultant oncologists. They are there to provide you with the highest quality care. 

Radiation Oncologist (RO)

A Radiation Oncologist is a doctor who has specialist training in Radiation Oncology
They are responsible deciding where you need treatment and for how long. You will have regular reviews with the RO throughout your radiation therapy treatment. You will also see the RO for ongoing follow up, once you have completed your treatment.

You will be under the care of one of our 3 Consultant Oncologists.
You can learn more about each of them here.

In addition to the Consultant Oncologists, BAROC has two Radiation Oncology registrars. Our registrars work closely with the Consultant ROs and the wider Radiation Oncology team to support you throughout treatment.

Radiation Therapist (RT)

Radiation therapists are trained in all areas of radiation therapy. They work as a team to CT, plan and deliver your radiation therapy treatment accurately and safely.

Radiation Oncology Nurse

Radiation oncology nurses have expert knowledge and training in cancer nursing. Our nurses are trained in symptom management and patient care. They provide information about the potential side effects of treatment and how to manage them. They will see you regularly during treatment and they will also help co-ordinate your care with other health professionals as required.

Medical Physicist

Our Medical Physicists are responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of our complex equipment. They perform regular quality checks on our CT scanner, planning system and treatment machines. 

They also play an important role in the development of new treatments.

Allied Health

Allied Health is a term used to describe a range of health care experts. These include Social Work, Dietitians, Speech Pathologists and an Occupational Therapist.
Depending on the type of cancer you are having treated, you may be referred to one, or several of our Allied Health team.

Social Work

Social workers are available for both patients and their families. They offer emotional and practical support. They can organise financial assistance and home-help. Specialised cancer counselling is also available.


Dietitians are experts in food and nutrition. They help patients manage the dietary related side effects which may affect some of our patients.

If you are having dietary problems, or it is expected that you may have issues with eating and appetite during treatment, you will be referred to the dietitian. 

Speech Pathologist

The Speech Pathologist provides support to patients experiencing difficulties with swallowing, communication (speech and language) and cognition (thinking, memory attention, planning and problem solving).

If it is expected that you may experience such issues during your treatment, you will be referred to the Speech Pathologist.

Occupational Therapist (OT)

Our Occupational Therapist is available to help patients maintain a good quality of life. In some cases, a patient's disease, or the side effects of treatment, can cause difficulties living a normal life. Fatigue or a loss of mobility for example, may make it difficult to manage household tasks.

The OT helps patients maintain their independence.
