An experienced SIRT team

The Christie in Manchester was the first UK cancer centre to set up a SIRT service in 2005 and it remains one of the biggest providers of selective internal radiation therapy in the country. The service started with private patients and expanded in 2009 when our audited results from this treatment led to the NHS commissioning us to provide SIRT for NHS patients within our network.

Our multidisciplinary team includes medical and radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, liver surgeons and specialist nurses. Patients being considered for SIRT should be referred to an oncologist within the SIRT team.
