Coming to Icon

It can be helpful to understand what to expect before coming to our centre.


What to expect at Icon

When you or a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis, it is normal to feel overwhelmed. It can be helpful to understand what to expect moving forward. Although everyone is different, the following steps are a common pathway for our patients.

  1. Booking an appointment
    We have dedicated specialists with experience across all cancer types. As a patient, you have control of deciding your choice of specialist and the preferred clinic location. To discuss the treatment options available at Icon, send us a message or contact your nearest Icon Cancer Centre directly.
  2. Your first appointment
    You will meet your experienced specialist at your first appointment to discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan, addressing any questions or concerns you may have. Throughout your entire treatment, your specialist will continue to care for you.
  3. Before starting treatment
    Further to your first appointment, one of our experienced care team members will spend time with you to explain your treatment; what to expect and how to manage possible treatment side effects. They will also chat about possible anxiety you and your family might be feeling. Our team collaborates with your specialist to ensure your care is truly personalised to your needs and those of your loved ones.
  4. Beginning treatment
    Your appointment and treatment cycle length is dependent upon the treatment you will receive. Throughout your treatment and beyond, your specialist and care team will monitor your progress, address your side effects and listen to any concerns or fears you may have. Our team are here to support you and ensure you are confident in your treatment and decisions.
