The importance of working in teams to improve the care of women with gynaecological cancers has long been recognised and is indeed the standard of care in the National Health Service.
Private patients do not always have access to multidisciplinary care. Dr McCormack, Consultant Clinical Oncologist and Miss Olaitan, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist, have for several years worked with other experts in their field to strive to bring the highest standard of care to their patients. As well as the patient-facing pair, the team includes specialist pathologists, radiologists and administrators. Patients also have access to specialist nurses to support them through their cancer journey.
This level of team working for the benefit of their patients was recognised in The Specialist Magazine Issue No3 – a publication by The Harley Street Clinic.
