About us

What we do

Radiotherapy UK is the only charity dedicated to improving radiotherapy treatment throughout the UK. We believe that everyone in the country – no matter who they are or where they live – should have access to the best radiotherapy treatment available.

Why we do it

A total of 1 in 2 of us will get cancer, and 1 in 4 of us will need radiotherapy at some point in our lives. Every four weeks delay in treatment reduces survival rate by 6-13% – that’s why our work to ensure people receive vital treatment is critical.

Our impact

The cancer backlog and Covid-19 are currently two of the biggest challenges in health and social care. Covid-19 presented new challenges to the radiotherapy community, and we are proud of how we adapted and grew the charity, campaigns and APPGRT. It is now time to grow the charity even further as Radiotherapy UK, to spread our message and gain even more support. For a very small organisation we believe we pack a significant punch. We have achieved so much with so little. We campaign to improve radiotherapy and cancer services as a whole. We campaign for the professionals and for the patients. We campaign to raise awareness to help people. We strive to fill the gap in providing a voice for radiotherapy and its community to help patients and frontline staff.
