You may need to attend a planning appointment or several pre-assessment appointments before your treatment. If brachytherapy is your only treatment with us, you will receive a letter telling you when your appointments are . On the day of your first appointment please come to the Radiation Treatment department and check in at reception.
We’re on Level 2 of Wellington Regional Hospital, behind Wishbone café. If you are coming from the underground car park, take the green lift to level 2.
You’ll talk to the Radiation Oncologist in charge of your treatment and meet a brachytherapy radiation therapist. This is a good chance to ask questions about your treatment. We’ll do a series of tests to make sure you are able to have brachytherapy.
These tests may include a CT/MRI scan, anaesthetic assessment, bladder function tests and/or blood tests. You are welcome to bring a support person.
