Breast and Skin Surgery

Our breast team offers a comprehensive range of care for patients presenting with a range of breast conditions:

  • One-Stop Breast Clinic – for patients with a new breast symptom.
  • Breast Pain Clinic – for the investigation and management of patients with breast pain.
  • Family History Clinic – for the assessment and management of patients with a family history of breast cancer.
  • Oncoplastic Clinic – for those patients who have previously undergone breast surgery, either for the treatment of breast cancer or in the cosmetic sector.
  • Gene carrier clinic – joining with teams from gynaecology, genetics, psychology and our breast care nurses, we offer a regional monthly specialist clinic for patients at high risk of developing breast cancer, either due to a genetic predisposition or as a result of previous treatments for other conditions.
