Care Plan Paves the Way Forward
13 February 2014

Macmillan radiotherapy specialists Lisa Mann and Amanda FordThe trail-blazing work of two specialist radiographers in our hospital has been highlighted in an article published in a prestigious journal. The article in the Society of Radiographers Journal discusses how the hospital has implemented and developed care plans for radiotherapy patients, taking them forward after their treatment has finished. It recognises the work of Macmillan radiotherapy specialists Lisa Mann and Amanda Ford. Over three years Ipswich Hospital was a national pilot for the care plans. As the work progressed it has been featured in a number of journals. Both Amanda and Lisa have presented papers on the plans at recent national conferences. As a result of the project the department has now had a great deal of interest in their care plan from other centres.
