Rapid access to the Bupa accredited breast care service includes fast access to a consultation with a specialist consultant breast surgeon and a Macmillan breast care nurse specialist. On-site diagnostics are available for the patient after the consultation if a digital mammography or ultrasound is required. Results are interpreted by a specialist radiographer and are delivered by the consultant on the same day.

The breast care team manages all aspects of breast disease/symptoms including family history. The one stop clinic allows patients to receive a fast diagnosis and in many cases, gives them the re-assurance they were looking for.
