What do you need to know

The Spire Specialist Care Centre offers radiotherapy and chemotherapy for head and neck cancers.
Our centre provides a full comprehensive support with head and neck CNS, dietitian and speech and a language therapist. All prophylactic PEG insertion and feeds are arranged through the aforementioned team or the patient’s GP. Our CNS nurse is also a nurse prescriber and oversees the medicine management alongside our SALT who is used for a pro-active approach to preserving swallowing complex. Each patient has a weekly follow-up post treatment, until they are handed back to their GP. To date, no head and neckpatients (both concurrent with bilateral neck treatment) have required rescanning or preplanning.
Before your treatment you will need to see a dentist. Macmillan have provided a comprehensive overview of what to expect.
