Lung Cancer MDT

The Lung Cancer Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) comprises a group of expert doctors, nurses and other health care professionals with a special interest in the diagnosis, treatment and management of people with lung cancer.

The team meets on a weekly basis to discuss, in confidence, all newly referred patients with a diagnosis (or suspected diagnosis) of lung cancer.

This approach ensures that all necessary investigations are carried out as quickly as possible and an agreed programme of treatment is planned which is specific to the patient's needs. Treatment options are then discussed with the patient and their family and started without delay.

The Lung Cancer MDT also links into other health care professionals in primary and secondary care as appropriate, to ensure a seamless service is provided which meets the patient's needs.
