The Virtual Multidisciplinary Team (vMDT) programme
Since November 2016, the Virtual Multidisciplinary Team (vMDT) programme has provided online expert advice to clinical teams in primary and secondary care on the management of consequences of treatment.
However, after careful consideration we would like to announce the service will close in January 2019. We will no longer be accepting referrals as we commence a comprehensive evaluation of the programme.
Macmillan recognise the many benefits of this programme, including engagement of over 90 experts, and will ensure learnings are embedded into other work programmes going forward.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved with the programme.
