Follow up

Following cancer treatment patients will be asked to return to the hospital to see one of the Endocrine 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 discuss any problems or worries they may have with medical staff.

Follow up appointments will take place at anĀ outpatients departmentĀ in one of the two hospitals of the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust; Belfast City Hospital or the Royal Victoria Hospital.

If patients notice any new symptoms, or have any worries, they should contact their Clinical Nurse Specialist, Consultant or local GP to discuss the symptoms as they may need additional treatment or rehabilitation services, such as a dietician or physiotherapy services.
