The Hospital is approved by BUPA Insurance for breast cancer treatment. Our Breast Clinic is led by a Consultant Breast Surgeon who is supported by a specialist Breast Care Nurse and a Mammographer. This specialist team can provide a rapid diagnosis through testing and consultation.
The initial appointment will include a physical examination and assessment. Depending on your individual circumstances and symptoms, your Consultant may then refer you for any or all of the following:
- A mammogram (an X-ray of the breast)
- An ultrasound scan of the breast
- An analysis of tissue sample following a biopsy
- A discussion with our specialist Breast Care Nurse
Wherever possible, the results will be available at this initial appointment and will be explained in a language that’s easy to understand. If further treatment is needed, the options will be outlined.
Appointments at our Breast Clinic are open to anyone with potential symptoms of breast cancer or other conditions. You can refer yourself without needing to speak with your GP or another healthcare professional.
