Your care is our main priority. Please ask us as many questions as you need to about your treatment and care. We strive to make your care and treatment as comfortable as possible.
Before Your Arrival
Please ensure that you bring the following with you for your first appointment
- A list of your current medications
- Your insurance/medical cover details, if relevant
We recommend that you are accompanied by your next of kin or a friend.
Unless advised otherwise by your doctor you may drive to the centre for your treatment.
On arrival in the Centre please check in at reception. The receptionist will advise your team of your arrival and you will be asked to take a seat in the waiting area. Tea/coffee facilities are available from a vending machine located in the reception area.
Your First Visit
On your first visit you will meet with a doctor called a Consultant Radiation Oncologist and members of the team who will look after you. Your past medical history will be discussed, you will be examined and treatment options will be discussed with you. Written information regarding your illness will be provided.
Remember, our staff are always happy to talk to you about your condition and treatment. If you need more information please do not hesitate to ask at any point before or during your treatment.
Pre Treatment Scan
Before you start your treatment, you may be asked to attend the centre for a scan to help the doctors in planning your treatment. This scan will take approximately 30 minutes. You do not need to fast prior to this. Any particular preparation required for this scan will be discussed with you at your initial consultation and confirmed when arranging your treatment dates either by letter or by phone.
