Check-up examinations during and after proton therapy

During radiotherapy

Following your radiotherapy sessions, you will have weekly or fortnightly appointments with the radiotherapist-oncologist or a trainee doctor specialist. Your doctor will check whether you tolerate the radiotherapy well. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions or request certificates and prescriptions.

After radiotherapy

On the last day of your radiation treatment, you will be given an appointment for your next check-up with the referring physician. You will remain under observation to monitor the effect of your treatment. Every year you will get an appointment with a radiotherapist-oncologist from the proton therapy centre.

If, in the days or weeks after finishing radiotherapy, you do not feel well or are worried about certain issues, you can request an earlier consultation after consulting your GP.
