One-stop breast clinic next steps

A number of your diagnostic test results will be available immediately and your consultant will talk through test findings with you and advise you on the next steps.

If tests confirm a diagnosis of breast cancer your consultant will discuss treatment options with our multi-disciplinary team of breast care specialists. If required, you may also be referred for further opinion and care to a consultant oncologist. Subsequent treatment may include one or a combination programme of surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and/or hormone therapy. Appointments for onward referrals, diagnostics or treatment will be discussed before you leave the clinic.

The advanced radiotherapy techniques on offer are provided by GenesisCare.  GenesisCare centres are located in the same grounds, or a short distance from the hospital, providing easy access to both locations. We work closely with GenesisCare's cancer care professionals to ensure continuity of care and easy access to the best facilities and medical teams for all your cancer treatment needs.

The expert teams at GenesisCare use some of the latest and most effective radiotherapy techniques available, including Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT). These advancements in radiotherapy technology means tumours can be targeted with a very high degree of accuracy, avoiding damage to healthy tissue and organs which causes less expected side-effects than conventional radiotherapy.
