Therapeutic radiographers Jacqui Hudson, Christina Benn Mackay and Luck Koh were able to attend their profession’s national annual conference after the charity spent almost £2,000 on conference fees, accommodation and travel to the Brighton venue.

The trio were able to share good practice with other staff from the UK and oversees, and learn from a patient-focused programme that covered a range of innovative topics.

The two-day conference took place last month and since then, the trio has been able to share their new knowledge with other members of the Radiotherapy Department team. 

Principal Radiographer (Education and Staff Development), Gillian Clarkson, said: “The learning gleaned by Jacqui, Tina and Luck has been shared to the benefit of the whole department and will be used to influence service improvements and further research.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation funds cutting edge equipment, research, training and other cancer services and therapies that the NHS is unable to afford. For further information on its work, including how to make a donation, visit the Rosemere website.
