    Hi @Freckles,

    A multidisciplinary team just means a group of health care workers who are members of different disciplines. They meet together to discuss your treatment and work together to hopefully give you the best care overall.

    Did the letter say who was on the team? Different situations/conditions will need different people. It might be surgeons, specialist nurses, people who do the scans etc.
