Our expert breast consultants

A consultant-delivered service

We believe in a consultant-delivered service providing a premium standard in imaging and breast care. The multidisciplinary team consists of consultant surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, breast reconstruction surgeons, physiotherapists and breast care nurses all working to achieve a personal, high quality, rapid assessment service.

What is digital mammography?

Digital mammography is a breast screening technology that uses digital receptors and computers to help examine breast tissue for breast cancer.

The electrical signals, which can be viewed on a computer screen, allow radiologists to spot any abnormalities earlier.

Using the latest technology from GE Healthcare, the equipment offers excellent 2D image quality whilst the slim design ensures patient comfort.

Do I need a referral letter?

A referral letter is not required for self-funding patients. You will only need a referral letter if you are using your private medical insurance. 

Referrals can be made by your GP or any other medical practitioner. 

How much does it cost and how do I arrange an appointment?

For self-funding patients, a consultation and examination by a Consultant Breast Surgeon is £200.

To arrange an appointment or for costs for further diagnostic tests, please contact our Self-pay team on 01905 362252.

One Stop Breast Clinic

Discovering a lump in your breast can be very distressing.

At the One Stop Breast Clinic at South Bank Hospital, our compassionate and multidisciplinary team of specialists work together to help diagnose the cause with minimal waiting for results.

All investigations and results are carried out and discussed with you within the Breast Care Centre.

How does it work?

  • You will have an initial examination with one of our specialist consultant breast surgeons
  • Any further imaging or diagnostic tests necessary to assess the lump are carried out immediately
  • Scan results are discussed with you by your consultant
  • If any abnormality is found on the scan, a biopsy will be carried out by the consultant in the clinic.

Throughout your visit a specialist breast care nurse will be available to provide you with support and information.
