Head and Neck Cancer MDT

The team

The Head and Neck Cancer MDT is a well-established group of experts with a specialist interest in the diagnosis, treatment and management of people with head and neck cancer. The team comprises doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who manage the treatment of head and neck cancers in the Thames Valley Cancer Network.

The team meet every Thursday to discuss, in confidence, newly referred patients with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of head and neck cancer. The MDT meetings offer a forum for the team members to plan an agreed programme of treatment specific to individual patient needs.

This approach ensures that all necessary investigations are carried out as quickly as possible. Treatment options are then discussed with the patient and their family and started without delay.

The Head and Neck Cancer MDT links with all those engaged in cancer care within the community and primary care, and offers specialist advice to other head and neck cancer teams within the Thames Valley Cancer Network. Patients from outside the county are often referred to our service in Oxford as we provide specialist treatment not available in all hospitals.
