Chemotherapy information sheets

The Chemotherapy information sheets give details about individual chemotherapy treatment. Your doctor will discuss this with you when you come to Christie.

Each card has:

  • name of drugs
  • the way the drugs are given, for example, injection or via a drip
  • treatment cycle (which days or weeks you have treatment and how long treatment lasts)
  • side effects and how to cope
  • contact numbers

Not all cards have this information as some regimens are altered to suit the person being treated, but the doctor and /or chemotherapy sister will tell you all about your treatment.

To view the details of each regimen click the name of the regimen
