While receiving care, you will usually have a main point of contact called a key worker. This is usually a clinical nurse specialist (CNS) or a specialist radiographer.
Your key worker is an important member of the Multi Disciplinary Team (MDT) specialists working together to support you.
You may meet your key worker at your first appointment, or after you have been diagnosed.
They will explain your tests and treatment options and support you and your family. You will also be given written information about the type of cancer you have, and other sources of information and support.
Your key worker may change as you go through different treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.Back to top
