The Macmillan Radiotherapy Late Effects Service is aimed at providing physical and emotional support to people living with long term effects because of their radiotherapy treatment. The service is funded by charity Macmillan Cancer Support and the NHS Somerset, Wiltshire, Avon and Gloucestershire (SWAG) Cancer Alliance. It is hosted by University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust.

Late effects following radiotherapy treatment for cancer can show themselves in many ways depending on the type of treatment you received, and the area of your body treated. These effects can develop from three months or many years after radiotherapy treatment has been given. If your radiotherapy treatment was many years ago and not in Bristol, we will still see you if your symptoms could be a result of your previous radiotherapy treatment.

Our service is for people who have finished all their cancer treatment (excluding long term hormones). If you are still undergoing cancer treatment please contact your treatment team. If you are under the guidance of palliative care please contact  the Supportive and Palliative Care Team.
