Linear Accelerators, Cabinet X-ray Systems and a Gamma Knife

Another week well underway and I am sat here in the garden office looking at squirrels getting soaked in the rain from the comfort of the garden office. Last week was quite hectic, time has rushed by and I cannot quite believe the last blog entry was May 29th. In the previous blog I wrote about getting ‘back on the road’, something that felt remarkable given the Covid-19 lockdown. Last week Ionactive managed 3 days of visits and some 950 miles of roads.

Due to hotels not being open for regular guests I needed to travel between Berkshire and Preston (and back) one day, and then Sheffield and back two days later. Normally such jobs would be combined so that visits could be consecutive with an overnight stay in-between. [It is true that some hotels are open to ‘key workers’ and it could be argued that the work on radiotherapy machines is 'key work', however the amenities on offer are on the light side - no food, refreshments or related services, so decided to drive , potentially saving rooms for others].
