I qualified as a radiographer in 1990 and worked on the treatment floor, achieving Superintendent 4 in 1996. I gained a Superintendent 3 post in Radiotherapy Information and Support in 1999, assisting in the development of radiographer led treatment review clinics and the supply of medications under patient group directions in 2002. I have been particularly involved in coordinating the pathway for patients embarking on therapies for head and neck cancer providing practical and emotional support before, during and after treatment. I am especially interested in the management of acute and late side effects of therapy.
“OM can be devastating for people having cancer treatment, their families and carers. It can affect communication and relationships, concentration and confidence, finances and security, and compliance with treatment. Timely, effective and consistent care Is so important.” | Mrs Lorraine Fulman
