COVID-19 continues to have a profound impact on every aspect of our lives, including access to treatment and care.
Whether you’re wondering how to make the most of digital appointments with your healthcare team, or you’re looking for clarity around the delays and changes to brain tumour treatment and care being caused by COVID-19 – this Q&A is for you.
Our experts can also help with questions around accessing additional support, or what options are available if you’ve been asked to go to your appointment alone.
