    About

    Dr Katharine Pigott graduated from the University of London in 1995 having trained at The Middlesex Hospital. She specialised in Clinical Oncology training at The Westminster Hospital and Charing Cross Hospital. She also spent two years working as a research fellow at Mount Vernon Hospital and the Gray Laboratory running clinical trials in hyper fractionation and undertaking an MD in measuring late radiation damage. She took up a consultant post at The Royal Free in 1996 and worked there for twenty years specialising in the management and treatment of urological cancers and breast cancer.

    During her time at The Royal Free, she was head of the Radiotherapy Department and Chair of The London Cancer Radiotherapy Expert Reference Group. Her clinical interests are research in breast and prostate cancer particularly in new radiotherapy technique and clinical trials. She was the radiotherapy lead for the TARGIT Academy at The Royal Free which taught intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) to centres throughout the world and participated in the TARGIT trials.

    She has published peer-review papers and co-edited books on the urological condition and intraoperative radiotherapy.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.
