Treatment team


The health professionals involved in the care of an individual woman with breast cancer will depend on the stage and type of breast cancer and where the woman is in her treatment journey.

It’s likely that relevant health professionals will meet to discuss what treatments are best for individual women in their care. This is called multidisciplinary care.

At different times in the cancer journey, a different treatment team member might be the main co-ordinator of a woman’s care. This person might be the breast surgeon, medical oncologist, breast care nurse, GP or another member of the team. This role may change over time, so it’s important for women to find out who to contact about any concerns.
