1. Your first appointment
At the first appointment, you will meet with your experienced doctor who will talk you through your diagnosis and treatment plan, and address any concerns and questions you may have. Your doctor will continue to care for you throughout your entire treatment and beyond.
2. Before starting treatment
Further to your initial appointment, one of our experienced care team will take some time to discuss your treatment, what to expect, possible treatment side effects and how to manage them. They will also chat about possible anxiety you and your family might be feeling. Our team works together with your doctor to ensure your care is truly tailored to your needs and those of your loved ones.
3. Starting treatment
The length of your appointment and cycle depends on the treatment being given. Throughout your treatment and beyond, your doctor and care team are here to monitor your progress, address your side effects and listen to any concerns or fears you may have. Never be afraid to seek clarity and reassurance to ensure you are confident in your treatment and choices.
