what to expect
coming to clinic
If your doctor thinks that you might have a soft tissue or bone sarcoma, you will
be referred to the Sarcoma Unit at the RNOH for further diagnostic tests. Once the
Cancer Coordinator has received the referral letter, you will be contacted with
appointments which may include scans and a biopsy. When all the results are available,
your case will be discussed at the weekly Sarcoma Multidisciplinary Team Meeting
and treatment decisions will be made. You will then be given an appointment to meet
one of the consultants to be given your results and a treatment plan.
This will be at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital outpatient department, either at Stanmore, or in the RNOH's
Central London Outpatient Assessment Clinic at Bolsover St.
To view leaflets and videos about your appointment and diagnostic tests at RNOH please see the patient information section.
If you already
have a diagnosis of sarcoma, you may be referred directly to one the sarcoma oncologists
at University College Hospital where you will be seen in the out-patient clinic
UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre
to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options.
