Services:

We offer regular follow-up examinations at UKBB for current patients who have completed their treatment. When they reach young adult age (approx. 18–22), they make the transition to adult treatment in the Haematology or Oncology departments at University Hospital Basel. Their first consultation (transitional consultation) takes place at UKBB with paediatric and adult haematological oncologists.

We offer discussions for former patients who want advice on examinations that will be necessary in the future and can compile a medical history for them containing the most important information about their disease and treatment, as well as recommended additional check-up examinations that they will need. We are happy to work with them to identify where further after-care could take place during adulthood, and the form such care will take.
