We have contact with a growing range of clinical professionals in most parts of the UK, such as gastroenterologists, dietitians, nurse specialists and urologists, who are familiar with the problems caused by Pelvic Radiation Disease. They can often provide useful advice about individual cases and can sometimes take referrals.
