The long-term follow-up service is for people who had treatment for cancer or a blood condition as a child or young adult. It offers ongoing and regular check-ups to monitor any health concerns that may have been caused by your treatment.
The aim of these appointments is to help you to manage the late-effects of your treatment for cancer or a blood condition. There’s more information about these appointments in our Long-term follow-up leaflet.
If you’re transferring from children to adult services, you will have an appointment in the transition clinic. There’s more information about this in our Nurse-led transition clinic leaflet.
Our team includes oncologists (cancer doctors), haematologists (doctors who specialise in blood conditions) and clinical nurse specialists (CNSs). They have experience in treating the long-term effects of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. Your follow-up appointments will be with a CNS or a consultant. Sometimes we may refer you to other specialists at UCLH.
You can contact our administrative coordinator Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm either by telephone or email (the contact details are below). They can:
- contact the clinical team for you about any medical or psychological concerns you have (one of our clinical team will then contact you to discuss it).
- reschedule your appointments.
- help you with any administrative queries you have.
