In addition to the services delivered by the Medical Exposures Group (MEG) in UKHSA, the Radiotherapy team provides the Chair and secretariat to the Patient Safety in Radiotherapy Steering Group (PSRT). The remit of the PSRT is to support the coordination of efforts of UKHSA, NHSEI, relevant professional bodies and service users to improve patient safety in radiotherapy across the UK as part of the national patient safety initiative in radiotherapy. This is achieved through an agreed annual programme of work. The PSRT provides a forum for the discussion and review of current matters associated with the safety of medical exposure of patients to ionising radiation, and action on findings.
