Breast Care Team
Welcome to the Breast Care Pathway. We hope you will enjoy your time with us and find it a valuable experience.
Our Philosophy of Care
To treat everyone as individuals.
To provide emotional, practical and psychological care for all patients (and their significant others) who attend clinics.
To support patients (and their significant others) throughout their pathway.
To provide patients with suitable and timely information to enable them to make appropriate decisions and informed choices regarding their treatment.
To refer patients to other health care professionals for additional support if required.
To provide ongoing support once treatment is complete.
Students will have plenty of opportunities to observe a variety of clinics including; breast screening assessment, biopsy results, ward follow-up, oncology and reconstruction.
Your time with us will give you a good insight into the patients journey through their cancer pathway as well as attending both therapeutic and diagnostic MDT’s. You will also have chance to observe medical and surgical procedures and tests.
