Importance of early diagnosis

Early diagnosis of cancer increases the chances of good recovery and outcomes, as such our rapid access and one stop clinics - for breast, gynaecology and testes - provide consultant and specialist-led assessment and diagnosis, complemented by ease of access to on-site diagnostic facilities and pathology. This service is designed to diagnose disease and start a treatment pathway quickly, while providing our patients peace of mind and fast access to care.

All decisions and patient treatment pathways at Spire Murrayfield Hospital Edinburgh are discussed and established by our multidisciplinary team of experts, which includes consultant surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, nurses, pathologists, mammographers and counsellors.
