High Grade Brain Tumour Patient Pathway

High Grade Brain Tumour Patient Pathway

This section contains our high grade Brain Tumour pathway.

The aim of the pathway is to guide you through various stages of the high grade brain tumour journey. Under each stage we will point you to relevant sections of our website, give you information on the health professionals that maybe involved at that stage and, if applicable, give you an idea of the timescale between some of these stages.

Your journey is likely to include some of the stages in the pathway but remember, each persons experience with a high grade brain tumour is unique and this pathway should only be used as a rough guide.

The pathway is a work in progress and we'd appreciate your input in any of the stages below. If you feel you have anything you'd like to add please Contact Us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
