The Patient Pathway
5. During Treatment
Weekly reviews with your radiation oncologist or one of our patient care specialists will be conducted to monitor any side effects and provide on-going support and advice as required.
Patient Education Session
Early in your treatment, we will arrange for you to meet with our patient education specialist. We will discuss your treatment plan, explain how the radiation is being applied and possible side effects. Patients have told us these sessions are very valuable and we encourage you to bring a friend or family member along with you. This is an ideal opportunity to ask any questions.
Remember that our team are available at any time to answer questions or concerns that you may have about your treatment or possible side effects. If required, the patient care specialists on site can usually see you shortly after your treatment appointment that day. Please scroll down to resources to download information about possible side effects by treatment area.
More information and answers to frequently asked questions are available on this website. If you have questions or concerns contact us on 09 623 6585 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reply to you within one working day (Monday – Friday).
