Cancer Care

Things to help you after your diagnosis & things to expect along with your treatment


Treatment Summary (TS)
This is done by the hospital and is a detailed summary of your cancer, the type of treatment you have received, any side effects caused by your treatment. This lets you know how to contact your cancer team if you have any concerns.
A letter or treatment summary will be done after each treatment/intervention has been
completed, this includes after surgery, at the end of chemotherapy or radiotherapy and
other treatments. A member of the clinical team will talk you through the document and give you and your GP a copy


Cancer Care Review (CCR)
The cancer care review is carried out at your GP practice to provide
further support with your diagnosis. You can request a review at anytime
by phoning the practice and booking an appointment.
This is an opportunity for you to talk to a health professional on how your
diagnosis has affected you and your loved ones. To ask any questions
and raise any concerns and needs you and your loved ones may have.
