Physics Department

The Physics Department at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre supports the clinical work of the Centre, and helps to develop and introduce new techniques and facilities. The department consists of around 50 members of staff, including registered and trainee Clinical Scientists, Clinical Technologists and Researchers. We provide expertise in radiotherapy, as well as supporting imaging modalities such as X-rays, CT, MRI and nuclear medicine. We have a Cyclotron on site, which provides the UK’s only proton-therapy facility for ocular tumours. Our research group includes postdoctoral scientists and PhD students.

Our aim, in partnership with our colleagues, is to deliver the best possible treatment for all of our patients.
