Slowly but surely……………………


There are many hospitals within the NHS that own Cold Laser machines; sadly many of them are not deployed because of lack of awareness and training. Only when a doctor has witnessed the power of the laser does he/she start to understand it’s potential.



The laser treatment represents a whole new way of treating patients, and at present the NHS model does not readily accommodate someone receiving a regular and perhaps hour long therapy from a doctor. However, there is progress as a result of the evidence – seeing is believing, and the UKITL is delighted to report the following:


Following in-depth training with Prof Gordon Farmer, a number of consultants have adopted laser therapy as part of their treatment of patients; the therapy is part of pioneering work at:


 Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital – oncology dept


Northampton General Hospital  – stroke and cardio unit


  Addenbrookes Hospital   – oncology and neurology units


                        Plymouth Hospitals   - oncology unit


We look forward to further adoption in oncology units and stroke units around the UK
