SACT Regional Guidlelines
Guidelines and protocols to support healthcare professionals to give SACT safely and treat any side-effects or complications that patients receiving SACT may experience.
The NCA coordinates the development of a regional approach to the management of SACT in our six North health boards.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information and recommendations contained within SACT guidelines. However, since cancer treatment is constantly evolving, it cannot be guaranteed that guidelines are always fully up to date.
Below are the current guidelines and over time there will be more added to this page.
