These health professionals work within a team which is called a specialist Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) which is based at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital. The members of the Gynaecology MDT are experts at treating and managing gyanecological cancers.  They are involved with your investigations, diagnosis and treatment.
