One-stop Clinic for Neck Lumps
The one-stop clinic for neck lumps is a truly multidisciplinary clinic where patients benefit from the input of a team of Head and Neck Surgeons, Haem-oncologists and Cytopathologists; with radiology and speech and language therapy readily available.
We also have a clinical nurse specialist in attendance to support patients with a new diagnosis of cancer.
This service has recently been commended by the Peer Review process for head and neck cancer services as a model of best practice and it was suggested that this model be adopted through the wider network.
