9. Chase your schedule


perseveranceThere may be multiple steps between you and a diagnosis – whether that diagnosis is cancer, or something else. You might face several tests and between each of these the consultants might need to meet at their MDT (Multi-Disciplinary Team meeting) to discuss your case.

Make sure you know what needs to happen between each stage.

Speak to your nurse specialist to arrange for them to contact you as soon as possible about the results of your scans. If you don’t hear from them, it’s totally ok to chase them up!
