In preparation for your first immunotherapy treatment we would recommend that you:

  • Watch the UHBW video on immunotherapy below or on YouTube.
  • Read the Macmillan immunotherapy information relevant to you.
  • Read the Macmillan leaflet on the specific treatment regimen you will be receiving. You may access this information on the Macmillan website.

This short film, developed within UHBW, will guide you through some general information on immunotherapy and what side effects you may experience whilst having the treatment.
