Gillian Thompson DCR (T), PgD

Senior Lecturer


I have been Professional Development Facilitator since April 2002. This role was developed to support the 4 tiers of Radiotherapy education and development and my main role is the clinical support of pre-registration students in Newcastle. I also do some academic teaching on the BSc and PgD programmes.


I am currently the Radiotherapy Return to Practice Course Leader for practitioners who are returning to the profession after being out of practice for two years or more. I am the module leader for the Contemporary Issues in Radiotherapy and Oncology on the MSc programme, and also the CPD study day lead for our subject group.
