    About

    Dr. Al-Booz is a Consultant Clinical Oncologist specialising in chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for gynaecological cancers and for cancers of the head and neck. She has special interest and expertise using specialised radiotherapy techniques such as Brachytherapy and IMRT.

    Dr. Al-Booz's experience has been built over years of specialist training in Leeds and Bristol. She completed a Masters degree in Medical Science of Oncology and an MD research on Prostate Brachytherapy in Leeds. In Bristol she lead research about normal organs that are at risk of being damaged by internal radiotherapy (Brachytherapy), as part of her interest in the radiobiology of high dose radiation used in Brachytherapy; working to better the research into the treatment she uses for a large number of patients, always striving for excellence.

    Dr. Al-Booz regularly attends the National and International medical and radiation oncology scientific meetings and conferences. She works closely with the Wales and South West Head and Neck oncologists and the South West Gynaecology oncologists. Both groups meet bi-annually to share and discuss clinical protocols, trials and she peer review their practices; giving her not only valuable insights into protocols but being at the forefront of local practices. She is also a core member of both multidisciplinary Head and Neck and Gynae-oncology teams in Bristol. Both her private and NHS patients benefit from fast referral to surgeons when needed.

    In addition to all her other work, she also teaches as a Clinical Teacher in the School of Clinical Sciences in the University of Bristol, and lecture at the University of the West of England to both under and post graduate students.She has obtained the Radiation Oncology Fellowship of both the Royal College of Radiologist in London and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, after which she then set up the Bristol Gynae-oncology course, which is the first in the UK to handle Gynae-oncology from diagnosis to all modalities of treatment; always receiving excellent feedback.
