David Wood

Sunshine Coast University Hospital

Before making the move to Australia David worked in an advanced role in the brachytherapy centre at The Christie in Manchester, one of the largest brachytherapy centres in Europe.

One of David’s key areas of interest was raising the profile of brachytherapy in the UK as a whole, and in particular the key role brachytherapy can play in the treatment of skin cancers. Before leaving the UK David worked with the team at The Christie, the University Hospital Le Fe, Valencia and Elekta to provide an annual two day workshop giving centres around Europe an introduction to the principles of skin brachytherapy with a hope of extending the accessibility of brachytherapy to skin patients in Europe.

David has recently joined the team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and hopes to continue his work in skin brachytherapy in Queensland.
