RRPPS is the Radiation Protection Service of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust. RRPPS employs around 40 staff across scientific, technical and administrative disciplines. We provide both ionising and non-ionising radiation protection and medical physics services to the Imaging and Radiotherapy Departments of Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull Hospitals and to a number of external customers throughout the West Midlands and beyond.

Parts of the rotations and the specialism training will be based at RRPPS in Kings Norton, Birmingham. This means some travel around the region will be required throughout the training, but it is often possible to organise lifts with supervising staff and access to departmental pool cars can be arranged. Other rotations will be based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Heritage Building) Cancer Centre and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

Our Radiotherapy Physics team has around 50 scientific and technical staff working in conjunction with clinical colleagues to provide approximately 4,500 new patients per year with World Class radiotherapy treatments. We utilise 6 Elekta Versa Llinar accelerators with Flattening Filter Free (FFF) functionality, a Tomotherapy HD, a Radixact unit with kVCT imaging, and a Cyberknife unit. We also have two wide-bore CT scanners, a dedicated brachytherapy suite and an XStrahl orthovoltage system. Our new equipment programme means an on-site MRI scanner and a second Radixact will be installed soon.

The radiotherapy rotation and specialism training will be based at the Cancer Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Heritage Building) in Birmingham. Other rotations will be based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and RRPPS (the Radiation Protection Service) in Kings Norton, Birmingham. RRPPS supports hospitals and external customers throughout the West Midlands and beyond. This means some travel around the region will be required during rotations here, but it is often possible to arrange lifts with supervising staff.

Here at UHNM you will be welcomed into the Medical Physics team which includes 21 clinical scientists who provide cover across the four specialisms.  All four rotations will be at the Royal Stoke site with your university placement at Liverpool.  As a department we have been successfully training scientists since the last century and you will follow in the steps of and benefit from the support of the existing second and third year trainees.  In the past we have been fortunate to offer some of our trainees a permanent position; the latest of which will be starting with us after qualifying in 2023.  Below is a brief description of the departments you will be working in.  The Diagnostic Radiology Physics department provides support and advice for several busy Hospital Trusts including The University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust.  The department undertakes routine testing of wide range X-ray equipment including CT scanners, Mammography equipment and General X-ray units to ensure their performance meets current national guidelines, in accordance with current UK Legislation.  In addition the department provides advice with regards X-ray room design as well as ensuring radiation doses to staff, patients and members of the public remain appropriate.  The nuclear medicine department at Royal Stoke University Hospital has three gamma cameras, a PET scanner and performs over 100 radionuclide therapies per year. We have commissioned two new state-of-the-art SPECT-CT systems in 2023 and will be commissioning a new PET-CT system this year. The SPECT-CT systems offer our patients 3-D quantification of radiotracer uptake which will be especially helpful when expanding our radionuclide therapy service. The Radiotherapy department is a Varian site consisting of two Halcyons, two Truebeams, a Gammamed HDR unit, an Xstrahl unit, a Siemens RT go Sim CT scanner and Ecilpse treatment planning system. We are involved with several radiotherapy trials, and provide SABR, VMAT, IMRT, conformal, 4DCT and DIBH treatment techniques with 2d kV and MV imaging and 3d kV and MV CBCT imaging. We are in the process of procuring surface guided radiation therapy. We also provide an iodine ablation service and a brachytherapy needle service. The MRI and Ultrasound Physics team is a small team of scientists who are dedicated to improving patient care using non-ionising imaging. We support a busy MRI department, operating 7 MRI scanners, as well as providing support to other local Trusts. Non-ionising imaging is a rapidly growing field, due to the increasing demand and complexity of scans. We therefore have an urgent need to train more scientists in this area. We are passionate about providing the highest quality training in areas such as QA, safety and image optimisation. At UHNM the physics team work closely with the clinical radiology team, meaning that even as a trainee you will directly see how your work impacts patient care.
