Liver Cancer MDT

Liver Services at Oxford University Hospitals offers a wide range of treatments for both primary and secondary liver cancer.

This includes treatment in the form of:

  • radical surgery
  • varied ablation techniques
  • selective internal radiotherapy (SIRT), also called radio-embolization (RE)
  • chemoembolisation
    novel as well as main stay chemotherapy including monoclonal antibody therapy
    clinical trials of new therapies.

The Liver Cancer Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) is a well-established group of experts with a specialist interest in the diagnosis, treatment and management of people with cancers of the liver, in particular those with a colorectal liver metastasis. The team comprises doctors, nurses and other health professionals who manage the treatment of these cancers in Oxfordshire.

The liver MDT also offers a specialist service and advice for others within the Thames Valley Cancer Network including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes, Oxfordshire and Swindon.

The team meets weekly on a Friday to discuss, in confidence, suspected, newly diagnosed and referred patients with cancers of the liver. The MDT meetings offer a forum for the team members to plan an agreed programme of investigation and treatment specific to individual patient needs. This approach ensures that all necessary investigations are carried out as quickly as possible. Patients are informed of the discussion and treatment options by the consultant in charge of their case and their Nurse Specialist. Treatment is started at the earliest opportunity.
