Tailoring Technology to Treatment

Common Q&A

In this section you can find general answers to the questions that are most often asked by patients about brachytherapy and that have not already been covered in the other sections of this website. Please remember that every patient is different. Therefore, the answers to some of these questions may not apply to you. Contact us either via the website e-mail or if you prefer, by phone if you cannot find the answer to your question on this website. We look forward to talking to you and will treat anything you say to us about your treatment in strict confidence.

Some of the questions, particularly those that are specifically about your own treatment and symptoms can only be answered by our medical staff. We know that if patients are well informed and involved in making decisions about their treatment it can make a lasting and significant difference to how quickly and well they recover from treatment.

Receiving and understanding the right information during your visits to our Centre is vitally important to us. ‘Questions to ask: getting the most out of your appointment’ is a booklet developed by the Department of Health to help everyone get the best out of each appointment.
