The practice of Medicine requires an evidence based approach with clinical audit to determine comparable results to peers. Thus clinical research both retrospective and prospective, is practised in the field of Neuro-Oncology and Head & Neck Cancers. Developing new methods of treatment via Stereotactic Radiotherapy is important. Psychological distress amongst brain tumour patients is also evaluated.
