Following diagnosis, your Specialist Nurse will talk to you about beginning treatment. You will be given a date to come back to Glasgow for a short admission in order to start treatment. This can sometimes be done as a day case. It will usually be arranged within 1 or 2 weeks of discharge and can be negotiated with your Specialist Nurse. In some patients it may be considered important to begin treatment without delay. If this is the case for you we may ask you to consider extending the diagnostic admission for an extra few days.

 

Following treatment, you are discharged home and you will receive an appointment to attend the SPVU clinic usually in about 3 months.
