Your Healthcare Team
Who might be involved in your care?
Your initial investigations, and any treatment are managed by a group of healthcare professionals. Find out more about what they do, and how best to access care.
We strongly recommend that your surgery is performed by a gynaecological oncologist. It is also ideal if your care is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team. This is a group of healthcare professionals who meet to consult about the same patient; each team member specialises in a different area of care and the care is coordinated between members of the team.
Multidisciplinary teams within a gynaecological cancer centre provide people with ovarian cancer the best possible care available. You should have a point of contact for the team. This may be your specialist oncologist, surgeon or specialist nurse.
If you live in a rural or regional area, you may need to access visiting health professionals or access advice through linked phone and internet services. Many rural centres also have links to the centralised multidisciplinary meetings.
