We are working closely with our radiotherapy centres in the network to improve experiences for patients who come for radiotherapy.
We want to make sure patients, their families and carers, have access to as much information as possible before they come for their first appointment.
There's lots of information on the website about radiotherapy and what to expect when you come for treatment.
Follow the links to view our information videos, leaflets and other information to support you during your treatment.
You can find a range of videos here about what to expect when you come to one of our centres for radiotherapy.
You can find helpful written information about coming to one of our centres for radiotherapy treatment here.
You can find information online about radiotherapy in general or about radiotherapy for specific cancers.
You can find information about radiotherapy research and clinical trials here.
The Passport is designed to help people who are struggling with poor mental health, and who are affected by long-term conditions including cancer, cope with attending appointments and treatment.
It’s a record to give you some practical support and comfort on your cancer journey.
You, and the healthcare team looking after you, can use the passport to log important information during your diagnosis and treatment.
You can order a paper copy of the passport, or download a digital version, by visiting the Signpost website.
“The passport is very straightforward, not full of detailed questions and small spaces given for writing in that don’t make it daunting” Cancer Nurse Specialist
We're still finding out about things happening in the area.
Please drop us a line if you know of any groups, events or meet ups that might be useful for patients and their families and we will update our website.
