A Treatment Summary is a document completed by a member of the team after the end of an acute phase of your treatment (not necessarily at the end of all your treatments).

Your Treatment Summary will include details of the surgery you have had, potential outcomes/consequences of treatment, and signs and symptoms of recurrence. It will be shared with you and your GP and helps to improve communication between the hospital and your GP.

The Treatment Summary provides your GP with up to date information and will inform them of any actions that need to be taken by them. It also helps them to better understand your treatment when they meet with you to do a Cancer Care Review.

If you haven’t been offered a Treatment Summary, please ask your Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) or one of the health care professionals involved in your treatment.
