Bonus Episode: Bethany Williams & Rebekah Lawes - Therapeutic Radiographers in the MR Linac Series

Naman Julka-Anderson and Jo McNamara catch up with Bethany Williams and Rebekah Lawes about their careers, therapeutic radiographer led working and MR Linac workflow.

The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust’s MR Linac was implemented with The Institute of Cancer Research, London (ICR), and funded by a £10-million grant from the Medical Research Council to the ICR and supported by The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. 
To use this podcast as CPD, look at these reflection points: 
  1. Reflect on potential patient benefits, challenges, and opportunities for improvement. 
  2. Identify specific cases or scenarios where this technology could enhance treatment precision and outcomes.
  3. Consider the enablers and barriers to therapeutic radiographer led workflows.
