If you have recently been told you have or are suspected of having a urological cancer you will have already met some of the people involved in your care. 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 Urology MDT are experts at treating and managing urological cancer. They are involved with your investigations, diagnosis, and treatment.
We also have a nurse specialist who deals with prostate cancer specifically. Helen uses her expert knowledge of prostate cancer to facilitate the prostate cancer pathway from new referral to diagnostic investigation enabling patients to have a smoother journey.
