sector: In this report, ‘sector’ relates to whether the site where treatment is delivered (facility or individual service location) is publicly or privately owned. This information is provided by the jurisdiction.
Private providers under contract to deliver services exclusively to public patients manage some sites, and are considered to be public providers for this report. Some private sites have a contract or partnership arrangement in place to provide services to public patients, but also provide services to private patients. In this report these services are characterised as private, along with services that provide services to private patients only. Some jurisdictions have no private radiotherapy providers. This collection does not include information on the source of funding for the patient (that is, whether they are a public or private patient).
