Information for health professionals

These pages are for people working with ovarian cancer in the UK, in terms of researching, diagnosing, treating and caring for women during the course of their disease.  The pages are still in the process of being developed, and more materials and features will be added on a regular basis, in order to meet the wishes of those working in these areas.

The ethos behind them is the sharing of good practice, and easy access to useful resources. If you have any suggestions for future developments please email
