Dr Christopher Fosker, who is a qualified clinical oncologist and specially trained in radiation oncologist, will be jointly employed by both organisations.  Dr. Fosker, will oversee the operation of radiation treatment facility which is being located at BCHC’s facility.

“This exciting partnership will enable cancer patients living in Bermuda to receive radiation treatments on island, which means they can stay at home with the support of their family and friends, rather than have to relocate abroad for many weeks at a time,” the BCHC explained.

“Chemotherapy services and oncology consultations will continue to be provided from BHB, as before.

“This collaboration ensures both quality and efficiency, with BHB and BCHC leveraging each other’s strengths and specialities to benefit the island’s residents.

“We look forward to working in partnership with the BHB as we go forward and sharing more information about the launch of the service in the near future.”

    This is excellent news and the results of the efforts of many people. Thank you

  2. Good grief! says:

    Sorry but offering radiation locally is not comprehensive cancer care. It can be an option if persons choose to have radiation locally but please don’t force the choice down patients throats! I do not have any faith in having my cancer care in the hands of local oncologists. Sorry been there, done that, not impressed, and will not go back to that choice.
