Future expectations

Radiotherapy centres were asked approximately how many additional WTE radiography staff they anticipated may be needed in their service up to and including 2018. 60 centres gave a numerical response to this question, ranging from 0 to 60 additional WTE radiography staff.

Note that the ‘Radiotherapy Services in England 2012’ report5 published by the Department of Health in England states that at least 80 additional therapeutic radiographers will be required for the proton service in England. There will be a ramp up of these numbers between 2015 and 2020/21.
