Mrs Maureen Thomson
Having worked in radiotherapy as a therapeutic radiographer for the last 34 years I now work with Head and Neck cancer patients. This is challenging on many fronts, however being able to support patients at this during their treatment journey not only helps the patient but I receive professional fulfilment. Our centre has a catchment area of 2.6 million of the population of the West of Scotland and beyond. Being involved in UKOMIC allows me to share my knowledge and to gain the support and knowledge of other professionals working in this field.
OM is a distressing side effect of cancer treatments, which needs expert management. UKOMIC is an ideal forum to share knowledge and support professionals and patients alike.
