Multi-disciplinary team

In order to provide the highest quality of treatment possible, a team  who specialise in bowel cancer, work together to provide timely diagnoses and effective treatment plans. This team is known as the Colorectal  Multidisciplinary team (MDT).  The team consists of surgeons, oncologists, clincial nurse specialists, stoma nurses, ward staff,  radiologists, pathologists as well as administrative staff and other health and social care professionals.

The Colorectal Cancer MDT meets every Friday morning to discuss colorectal patients. Detailed discussions between all the relevant specialists take place, looking at all the available results for each patient to ensure that the best treatment plan for every patient is agreed.

A record of this discussion will be sent to patients' GPs.
