The chemotherapy team will contact you following a referral from your Consultant to arrange an information session in the chemotherapy department. A specialist chemotherapy nurse will spend time going through in detail what you should expect from chemotherapy and how we can help you manage the side effects of treatment. We wll give you all the contact numbers you need and check that all the tests we need before before starting chemotherapy have been done. You will usually start chemotherapy a few days after the information session.
