Macmillan virtual Multi-Disciplinary Team (vMDT), a new, expert service which is being tested in partnership with The Christie.

Around 625,000 people experience long-term consequences following their cancer treatment. Some of these are complex and highly debilitating and may benefit from expert advice from a range of specialties that may not be available locally.

The Macmillan virtual MDT system is now available to accept referrals and we would value your help in raising awareness about this new service.

The Macmillan virtual MDT is designed to facilitate access to expert advice for your patients' complex or severe chronic symptoms following cancer treatment.

• It's a secure online forum providing quick and easy access to multi specialist advice, such as opinions from cardiologists and gastroenterologists.

• Referrals to the vMDT can come from oncology teams anywhere in the UK and will receive a response within three weeks, helping shared decision making regarding future care.

• Referring healthcare professionals select which advice to follow and maintain responsibility for their patient throughout.

• The aim is to improve the outcomes and quality of life for people experiencing complex issues.

For more information about the vMDT, including referral criteria, the history and background of the project or to browse the FAQs, please visit MacMillan Website
