Specialist teams and centres
If you have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, your case should be reviewed by a specialist pancreatic Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) at a specialist centre. There are specialist centres across the UK. Hospitals in the region work with the specialist centre to make sure people get the best treatment.
The MDT is the team of medical professionals responsible for your treatment and care. They will agree the best treatment and care for you, and should take your wishes into account. You may not need to go to the specialist centre or meet the members of the MDT. You may be treated in your hospital’s local cancer unit, but your doctor should tell you what the MDT has decided.
