Sarcoma UK MDT

If you have been diagnosed with sarcoma, you should be referred to a specialist sarcoma team for diagnosis and treatment of this kind of cancer.

Your case will be managed by a team of experts from a wide range of health care professions called a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Your MDT will include your key worker or sarcoma clinical nurse specialist, surgeon and other healthcare professionals involved in your care.

Some people will be treated under other multidisciplinary teams (MDT) depending on the site of the tumour. For example, people with GIST may be treated by gastrointestinal (GI) specialists.

Some treatments, such as radiotherapy, may be delivered in your local hospital.

Your MDT will support you throughout your treatment to ensure you get the right treatment as and when you need it.
