Summary

The Royal College of Radiologists, Society and College of Radiographers and the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine regard it as essential that, for the whole of the UK, we achieve cancer survival rates equivalent to the best in Western Europe. Improving the quality of radiotherapy is a key component of increasing survival rates along with initiatives to achieve earlier diagnosis. We expect an increasing demand for radiotherapy as the population ages. Highest quality of technical radiotherapy with respect to planning and delivery will maximise cancer survival, minimise late effects and achieve the optimum therapeutic ratio.
