About Breast service

Breast services provide multi-disciplinary care to patients with symptomatic breast disease and in particular to women with breast cancers. The team works together to ensure patients are seen quickly and receive the highest quality of investigation and care.

About Family History clinic

Our Family history clinic is run by Consultant and breast care nurses. The service provides care to asymptomatic individuals and families at higher risk of developing breast cancer including those known to carry one of the breast cancer genes (BRCA1, BRCA2). Patients are given the opportunity to discuss their family history of breast cancer which forms the basis of a risk assessment
