This involves a visit as an outpatient to The Christie. You will have a consultation with a doctor, blood tests, ECG, and give consent for the procedure. You can drive yourself to the hospital and home again. The visit may take several hours.


You will be asked to sign a consent form agreeing to accept the treatment that you are being offered. This is based on the understanding that you have read the booklet provided and have been given an opportunity to discuss any concerns.

Consent may be withdrawn at any time before or during treatment. Should you decide to withdraw your consent, then a member of your treating team will discuss the possible consequences with you.
