Neuro-oncology overview

The neuro-oncology service is run in conjunction with UCLH. Patients with acoustic neuroma and intrinsic brain tumours will receive treatment at UCLH where inpatient and outpatient services are. Referrals should be made to the RFH neurosurgery team who will confirm the pathway. Some tumours may be managed at RFH where there is a weekly Multi Disciplinary Meeting (MDM) for comprehensive discussion of patient imaging, pathology and treatment.

There are joint MDMs with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) in Queen Square, our partner hospital in the North Thames London Network (NLCN), which decides policies and treatments at both sites (RFH and NHNN).
