There are many treatment modalities available and most are very expensive. With poor evidence base, it is important therefore for all cases to be discussed and managed within a multidisciplinary team. The patient should have information available with which to make rational choices about various treatments. This information can be obtained through centres who regularly treat these patients UKNET is an organisation set up to discuss management of carcinoid and gastroenteropancreatic NETs. Contact is the UKNETWORK website: www.uk-network.org.uk The patient support group can be contacted at livingwithcarcinoid.org.uk (website under construction).
