Multi-disciplinary team

The Regional Neuro-Oncology Service

The Regional Neuro-Oncology service or Neuro-Oncology Multidisciplinary team (MDT) is made up of professionals who are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spinal tumours.

The team meet every Friday afternoon in the Royal Victoria Hospital Belfast to discuss patients referred from across NI who have had investigations for a suspected brain or spinal tumour. The team discuss results from each patient's recent investigations and this will help the Neuro-oncology team make decisions regarding each patient's treatment plan.

The team’s decision will be discussed with patients either at their next appointment, or be conveyed to the local hospital team or to the GP involved in patient care.

Each patient will be involved in the final decision regarding their treatment. Their GP will also be informed of this treatment plan.
