Supporting people with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma
Overview

Keypoints

  • Patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma are usually treated at their nearest specialised unit
  • That is where the presence of the disease will be confirmed, treatment given and follow-up checks carried out
  • A number of health professionals work in the lymphoma unit, including clinical specialist nurses and specialist doctors

A group of professionals, making up the lymphoma team, plays a big part in the management of almost all patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. They make the definitive diagnosis of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and carry out the initial diagnostic tests. The lymphoma team will also plan and give treatments, and organise follow-up appointments and check-ups after treatment has been carried out. Sometimes, however, the patient may have the initial visits at a local community hospital and then have the more specialised tests and treatment at a larger hospital.
