We are a major Neuroendocrine Tumour Centre providing comprehensive care. Our patients have the advantage of all necessary specialists needed for their complex cases being located under one roof. The hospital is widely recognised as providing cutting edge expertise, as highlighted in the BBC2 television series ‘Surgeons: at the edge of life’, in 2018
Our goal is to continue providing best possible care and to push the boundaries of possibilities for all NET patients. As such, we are recruiting patients in to clinical trials and helping plan future research. We are contributing to better understanding of this condition.
All our NET patients are managed according to individualised treatment plans. In addition, both medical and surgical specialists are present in the joint NET clinic. This ensures good communication and enables us to deal with most of our patients’ issues in the same visit. We are leading the way in empowering patients to get the best from the health service; QEHB patients can have access to their records online through myhealth@QEHB. Patients are also able to keep an electronic symptoms diary. We are developing this system further to allow each patient to have their personalised healthcare plan. The QEHB has facilities such as The Centre for Rare Diseases which will help accelerate improvements in patient survival. These developments offer tremendous opportunities for patients and doctors to work together to greatly improve patient experience and outcomes.
