The Brain Tumour Unit offers high-quality treatment and care to patients with, or suspected of having, any form of brain or spinal tumour. We provide multidisciplinary care for patients who are referred from other hospitals or GPs. Brain and spinal tumours are relatively rare conditions but they can cause significant problems for patients and carers and require a variety of different experts to treat and care for patients.
At the NHNN this care is delivered by different members of a multi-disciplinary team (MDT). The team meet once a week to formally review and discuss cases. Patients will then meet the most appropriate member of the team to discuss the proposed treatment plan.
There are five specialist MDTs including Brain tumours, Skull base tumours, Pituitary tumours, Spinal tumours and Rehabilitation and non-surgical care.
