Meet our team

The Team at The Prostate Brachytherapy Centre work closely together to make sure you are well looked after and kept informed at each stage of your treatment at the Centre.

We like to treat patients as individuals and not just treat their cancer. We know how important it is to be able to speak to the right person at the right time and will always aim to book your appointments at times to suit your lifestyle. During your time at our Centre you will meet with some, if not all, of our team. Here is where you can find out a little bit about them and the work they do.
