The Regional Medical Physics Department is part of the UK's National Health Service and provides a wide range of services throughout the northern England to a population of three million people. The Department, which is a Clinical Directorate of the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, provides a first class medical physics service that adds value to health care through regional integration and innovation.
The Department was originally part of the Northern Regional Health Authority and then, as today, is organised on a regional rather than a hospital or Trust basis across the north of England.
The Department is actively involved in many disciplines within the NHS on a day to day basis, providing scientific and technical expertise to aid the diagnosis of disease and dysfunction. We provide a comprehensive range of multidisciplinary support services throughout the north east of England and Cumbria such as the Mobility Service, the Technical Aid Services quality assurance, radiation protection, scientific and technical support in treatment plus teaching and training.
For further details of our services, see the Services Section of this web site.
The Department comprises about 100 Clinical Scientists and 140 Medical Technologists, from a variety of scientific and engineering disciplines, dedicated to serving patients, their Consultants, General Practitioners and the community throughout the north of England. The integrated Regional organisation and management within the Department ensure that our services are available cost-effectively and are mutually supportive region wide.
The Department's services are provided through strategically located Units in Carlisle, Durham, Middlesbrough, Newcastle upon Tyne (three sites including our HQ) and Sunderland. In addition, smaller Units provide patient services locally and also act as the interface to the expertise of the whole Department. They are located in Darlington, Gateshead, Hartlepool, South Shields, Stockton and Whitehaven.
