Our team of four specialist Breast Care Nurses (BCN), also known as Key Workers, are there to provide continuity of care for women (and men) with breast cancer.
Your breast care nurse is available to offer emotional support, guidance and information for you and your family.
Their role is to help you understand your treatments and to be a point of contact if you are concerned about any aspect of your care or treatment.
In addition to supporting breast patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings, the BCNs also provide a wealth of information about a variety of breast conditions, and can advise on non-clinical matters including financial advice following cancer diagnosis.
The BCNs also have specialist interests including family history clinics and breast reconstruction, and work closely with their colleagues in the prosthetics department and lymphoedema clinic, to provide a comprehensive service for our local population.
Office hours: Monday to Thursday 9:00 – 16:30 and Friday 9:00 – 16:00.
