About Us

The Breast Unit is run by a multidisciplinary team:

  • Two Consultant Oncoplastic Breast Surgeons
  • Two Advance Nurse Practitioners
  • Two Consultant Oncologists
  • Two consultant Breast Pathologists
  • Six consultant Breast Radiologists
  • Four Breast Care Nurses

Our excellent imaging equipment includes two digital mammography units, two high-frequency ultrasound machines – with capability for vacuum biopsy in addition to standard core biopsy – plus radiological expertise in the reporting of breast MRI.

Our comprehensive services include on-site testing facilities that can give the results of biopsies within 24 hours.

We’re one of the busiest breast units in the region and we treat about 280 new breast cancers each year.

Our four breast care nurse specialists support patients through the diagnostic and treatment pathway and offer lymphoedema, wound, family history and tattooing clinics.

Medical oncology services are provided in partnership with the Royal Marsden. Clinics and chemotherapy are delivered at our site, with radiotherapy provided at the Royal Marsden’s Chelsea or Sutton locations.

Our unit treats the full range of benign and malignant breast conditions and provides a full range of surgical procedures.

We also run one-stop clinics, joint oncology clinics, and follow-up clinics. Additionally, we offer Open Access Follow-Up (OAFU) for some patients who have recently received treatment.
