Follow Up

As part of their cancer review following cancer treatment patients will be asked to return to the hospital to see one of the colorectal cancer team. The frequency of these review appointments will differ for each patient. The review appointments allow the team to assess patient progress following treatment. The check-ups are also a good opportunity for patients to talk to their doctor about any problems or worries they may have.

Follow up appointments will take place in an outpatients department in Belfast City Hospital.

If patients notice any new symptoms, or have any worries, they should contact their consultant, their local GP or the colorectal clinical nurse specialist to discuss the symptoms.
