The Breast Unit offers a variety of outpatient services, including consultant-led symptomatic and screening clinics, and specialist nurse-led family history and lymphoedema clinics.
The unit receives over 1,500 new patient referrals every year. Our clinicians are assisted by a dedicated team of clinic nurses who are experienced in all aspects of patient care.
The Breast Imaging Suite is next to the Broadland Suite, and offers a state of the art facility, including digital mammography, ultrasound with elastography, and interventional procedures such as vacuum assisted biopsy. The unit performs over 17,000 mammograms every year.
