Follow-Up Consultations Zürich

(Only available in German) 

The Oncology Follow-Up Care Network closes a gap in the greater Zurich area. It consists of oncologists from the paediatric and adult sectors as well as the Cancer League of the Canton of Zurich, who in turn work together with other specialists from various disciplines within the network. The aim is to provide a comprehensive follow-up care service for young adults in the greater Zurich area that is specifically tailored to their needs.

The reason: after having received therapy for a tumour, subsequent medical problems can occur, which is why check-ups are advisable. Questions may also arise in connection with schooling/education/training, a choice of career, further life planning or wanting to have children – subjects which are not the specific brief of a paediatric oncologist. This is where the services of the Oncology Follow-Up Care Network come in.

Appointments: by arrangement. You can select a specialist on the network website yourself and make an appointment with that person directly using the corresponding link.
