Story

The Little Linac project was started by Professor David Brettle, when he was President of IPEM. His vision was for IPEM to provide every child in the UK undergoing radiotherapy treatment for cancer with a free kit of play bricks to make a model treatment machine (linac, short for linear accelerator). Toy bricks are every childs favourite toy and are an ideal way to educate young patients about their treatment in a way that is designed to reduce their stress and anxiety, and so contribute to successful treatment sessions.

Our partners in the Little Linac project are: the British Institute of Radiology, the Royal College of Radiologists and the Society and College of Radiographers.
