To ensure your care is tailored to your needs, your Consultant will supervise your care in conjunction with the oncology team throughout your entire treatment process. Your Consultant will discuss the most effective and appropriate treatment with you following your cancer diagnosis. Your treatment pathway may include one or more of the following:
- Hormone therapy
- Biological/targeted therapy
- Bone marrow or stem cell transplant
- Other treatments including cryotherapy, brachytherapy*, laser treatment and high-intensity focussed ultrasound*
*These treatments will be arranged by your Consultant at another hospital.
After your initial consultation, you will be offered a pre-treatment appointment. This is an opportunity to meet the nursing staff, view our facilities and ask any questions you may have.
