We’ll also explain the different types of intensive and non-intensive treatments, who can have a particular therapy, how they work, their efficacy and side effects.

Dr Clare Rowntree (Consultant Haematologist, Cardiff and Vale NHS Trust) will be leading our webinar, and he will also be joined by a clinical nurse specialist and an ALL patient to explore topics together and answer your questions during the discussion.
