Latest Winner

The winner of the May 2019 You Made a Difference Award is:- Suite 10 Radiographers

Suite 10 Radiographers were our May 2019 You Made A Difference award winners. Please can you arrange for the internet to be updated. Below is the brief. Sorry the team did not attend to have their photo taken.

The following comments were made about Suite 10 Team in the nominations. Judges picked out the team as very deserving winners and said that the comments made about them showed how they represent the Christie principles and behaviours.

I've been receiving radiotherapy for prostate cancer on Suite 10 for a couple of weeks now and couldn't be treated better.

I collapsed in the waiting room, fortunately nothing serious, just a bad case of dehydration. Lying in a semi-conscious state on the floor I was aware that I was being picked up and placed in a wheel chair and taken to a side room. There I was checked over thoroughly for the best part of an hour, eventually sorted and taken for my treatment.

What I am writing about is the people who looked after me, who came from who knows where. Of course their specialties weren't "people passing out" they were cancer people who apparently, so I found out, had studied for other skills who were able to help me. The lady who took charge was in radiotherapy. A guy called Marcel who was brilliant took blood etc. and talked to me to reassure me. Tom a young man, nurse I think, who has some experience in cardiology. I think all three were about to finish for the day when I took ill but stayed to make sure I was ok.

I was so well looked after that I thought I should let you know how good the treatment was I received especially with it not being cancer related. Even this week the lady I see each day on Suite 10 reception was asking if I was ok after the previous Friday. Hope you don't mind me emailing about this but they really did go above and beyond for me.

David Price, patient

The Suite 10 team in Radiotherapy is comprised of Therapy radiographers; the radiographers in the linac teams have excellent patient care and technical skills to deliver a technical image guided treatment while supporting the care of the patient during their radiotherapy treatment. The radiography team are supported by a clinical support worker who further supports the patient with queries, appointment issues and general patient care.

The radiographers in Radiotherapy always go above and beyond for every patient and it is good that this has been recognised outside of the radiotherapy environment.

Well done team and Thank you

Clare Triffitt, Manager
