The patient treatment pathway

This describes what will happen to you after you have been diagnosed with melanoma and referred to The Christie Hospital.

This is only a guide. Treatment options, visits and times can vary depending on your diagnosis of melanoma, the stage of disease (some stages may not require treatment), the therapeutic/ treatment plan and your state of health.

At each appointment you will see one or more of the Melanoma Team. You will not always see the same person at every visit. All the Melanoma Team are involved in your diagnosis and care, and are part of the decision making process for your treatment plan. So whoever you see, they will be well informed about you.

Patient Pathway Clinical Trial Treatment

There is also a 15 minute YouTube film about taking part in clinical trials (this is general and not specific to melanoma trials.)
