our approach & expertise


multidisciplinary team approach

It is clear that patients with sarcoma are best treated by a team of specialists with expertise in treating sarcomas. Within the London Sarcoma Service we have a large team of clinicians, specialist nurses and allied healthcare professionals (including physiotherapists, dieticians, occupational therapists) caring for patients across the two sites at RNOH and UCH. This multidisciplinary team working is coordinated by a cancer team coordinator at each hospital.

While there is an emphasis within the service on the treatment of orthopaedic tumours of the limbs and trunk, bone and soft tissue sarcomas can arise at any site of the body, and so the London Sarcoma Service has developed a network of site specific extended multidisciplinary teams to offer sarcoma specific treatment, whatever the tumour site.
