About Us

5Radiation Science Services provides scientific and technical support to diagnostic and interventional radiology in UHBW, North Bristol Trust , and Breast Screening programmes in Somerset and Wiltshire, assisting them to provide a high quality and safe imaging or treatment service to their patients.

We are a team of clinical technologists, clinical scientists , administrative staff , apprentices and trainees. We provide training on the clinical technologist apprenticeship scheme and clinical scientist training programme  as well as training for healthcare professionals across the hospitals.

We employ Medical Physics Experts, as required by the Ionising Radiations (Medical Exposures) Regulations, or IRMER, Radiation Protection Advisers to advise on ionising radiation and Laser Protection Advisers to advise on laser and artificial optical radiation, such as ultraviolet.

Medical imaging has a vital role in the management of many patients.  It is an evolving field, with new and improved imaging techniques coming into use, often requiring complex scanners and other equipment.

Imaging must be carried out in a way which minimises these risks, whilst still obtaining high quality images.  We work with medical staff, radiographers, engineers and other staff groups to achieve this. 

Some types of non-ionising radiation may also be used for treatment. UV light sources are used to treat some skin conditions, whilst laser radiation may be used in surgery, particularly on the eye.  These may also be hazardous unless accurately calibrated and correctly used.
