In recent years a number of changes have taken place in the delivery of breast cancer services in the UK in an attempt to provide access to high quality treatment for all patients with this disease.
The publication of profession led Calman Hine guidelines for the management of symptomatic breast disease in the UK has provided a framework for the prompt diagnosis and treatment of all patients with benign and malignant disease.
Spire Methley Park Hospital wants to ensure access to high quality diagnosis and management of breast disease. The need for a specialist approach is fundamental to the selection criteria to achieve recognition as a “Breast Care Unit”.
The ongoing care, at Spire Hospitals, of this quality standard acknowledges the desire to promote clinical governance.
As well as the initial diagnosis and management of breast disease, patients have easy access to a full range of services including chemotherapy, radiotherapy and breast reconstruction.
