We are a team of nurses predominantly specialising in breast cancer.
We support patients who are referred through the NHS breast screening programs, via their GPs, with a suspected cancer, or any patient with a diagnosis of breast cancer.
We have a wide range of responsibilities, which include:
Being a point of contact for you throughout your treatment and on-going care
Offering emotional support and expert clinical advice
Referring and signposting to other support services (e.g. financial, social and community)
Health promotion, education and provision of holistic needs assessments
Advice and support for living well with cancer and beyond cancer treatment
Supporting patients with recurrence and secondary breast cancer
We work closely with our colleagues in Radiology, General Surgery and Oncology to ensure that you are supported throughout all aspects of your treatment.
If you require a replacement prosthesis, please ask your GP to refer you straight to this service.

There are many different resources available for people with breast cancer, nationally and locally.
