The Breast Radiotherapy Injury Rehabilitation Service is designed for a discrete cohort of women who have severe, chronic and complex conditions arising from radiation-induced injuries.

These women received high doses of radiotherapy in the 1970s and 1980s – the favoured treatment in some centres at the time – for breast cancer. The BRIRS provides a specialist, multi-disciplinary rehabilitation service.

The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases NHS Trust provides evidence based, national and regional services for adults living with and beyond cancer. Referrals can be made directly by potential patients, by a member of their cancer team or by their GP.
