Congratulations to Life Hilton Private Hospital !
According to Ms. Clarke, medical institutions should consider becoming Novalis Certified because: “Certification ensures that your unit is benchmarked against other international centers. It also provides the radiotherapy team with tools to grow in confidence to successfully deliver these highly technical treatments safely.”
See below for more of Ms. Clarke and her team’s top takeaways from the Novalis Certification process.

“The safe delivery of stereotactic radiosurgery treatment demands exceptional precision and accuracy as the consequences of a single radiation error can be enormous. This, therefore, requires a focus on processes, equipment and delivery of care. The aim of becoming certified was to ensure that the utmost confidence was instilled in all radiotherapy team members to plan and safely deliver SRS and SBRT through improving skill competency, developing and standardizing protocols and workflows, and the overall improvement of effectiveness. We also wanted to create an awareness in our community around the importance of safe, accurate delivery of SRS/SBRT.”
