We provide a one-stop treatment and care for lung cancer using holistic approach. We improve patient care and outcomes by minimising delays between diagnosis and commencement of treatment by having a team of specialists to plan the treatment that is deemed best for the patient. Specialists from different expertise will meet and develop treatment options based on patient’s conditions. The treatment plans are then collaboratively developed by the team considering all modalities and options for the lung cancer patient.
