Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre [BCHC] has signed a collaborative agreement with the Bermuda Hospitals Board [BHB] to partner in the delivery of radiation therapy for people in Bermuda. BHB will provide CT diagnostic and specialist support for BCHC’s radiation service.
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.”
