We should like to express acknowledgements of the hard and efficient work
which the staff of the department have done during the year. Radiotherapy is
an exacting form of treatment and can only be carried out efficiently by a staff whose
keenness and good team work are of a high order. We have been very fortunate
in the staff that we have had during the year to work with us.
