Hello Rose

Hope today's appointment goes well. The pattern of who leads appointments varies between hospitals. In some areas the Lung Cancer Nurse Specialists will lead and manage appointments on their own. Your results will be discussed with all the medical staff at a Multi Disciplinary Team meeting, which is where your treatment plan will be discussed. Depending on the hospitals these meetings may take place every fortnight or more often.

Fingers crossed for you,

best wishes



Thank's Lorraine I remember them telling me this now you've mentioned it but had forgotten head like a sieve lol I'll keep you updated with how it goes


I have had several lots of results given to me by my nurse specialist. Seems to be the norm in my hospital. Hope you got good news and keep us informed.
