The chemotherapy and radiotherapy guidelines are developed by the various NSSGs and depending on the nature of treatment may be either combined (i.e. chemo/radiotherapy) guidelines or stand alone. Guidelines necessarily need to be ‘live’ documents and, although they have planned updates, clinical information changes rapidly and guidelines may be updated between review dates.
