what to expect


coming to clinic

If your doctor thinks that you might have a soft tissue or bone sarcoma, you will be referred to the Sarcoma Unit at the RNOH for further diagnostic tests. Once the Cancer Coordinator has received the referral letter, you will be contacted with appointments which may include scans and a biopsy. When all the results are available, your case will be discussed at the weekly Sarcoma Multidisciplinary Team Meeting and treatment decisions will be made. You will then be given an appointment to meet one of the consultants to be given your results and a treatment plan. This will be at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital outpatient department, either at Stanmore, or in the RNOH's Central London Outpatient Assessment Clinic at Bolsover St.

To view leaflets and videos about your appointment and diagnostic tests at RNOH please see the patient information section.

If you already have a diagnosis of sarcoma, you may be referred directly to one the sarcoma oncologists at University College Hospital where you will be seen in the out-patient clinic in the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre to discuss the diagnosis and treatment options.
