Meet the multi-disciplinary team (MDT)

The head and neck oncology team are a multi-disciplinary team made up of oncologists, pathologists, surgeons, radiologists, cancer specialist nurses, dieticians and speech and language therapists who all work together to ensure each patient can benefit from the expertise of each member.











The team meeting at Poole takes place on a Tuesday to discuss the specific details and treatment needs of patients and the various treatment options are then presented to the patient at the morning clinic.

Patients will meet various members of the team at these clinics and be treated at the individual clinician’s clinics at times and locations suitable to their needs. 

Patients receive a follow-up and are monitored at these clinics after treatment for up to five years.
