Planned Centre of Excellence for NETS in Ireland

The NCCP (National Cancer Care Program) has selected Neuroendocrine Tumours as one of the rare cancers that it wishes to examine as part of the restructuring of cancer care in Ireland. At a conference in Trinity College in November, the NCCP, the HSE and medical professionals in Ireland were joined by recognised international specialists in neuroendocrine tumours.  A new unified strategy was agreed which would strive to create a centre of excellence in NETs in Ireland, linking St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin with Mercy Hospital Cork and Galway University Hospital.  A dedicated NET Consultant will be appointed to head this new centre try this site.
