If your trust does not treat Stage IIIB/IV NSCLC patients and you refer your patients to another trust, please state to which trust patients are referred

 

 

Response:

We do not treat lung cancer at this trust.  Upon diagnosis the patient would be transferred to one of the treating trusts namely The Christie NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust.

 

Therefore we would not be ‘managing them’ during treatment.
