Rapid Access Breast Clinic

Rapid Access Breast Clinic We offer a Consultant led Rapid Access Breast Clinic that aims to provide rapid investigation and guides patients from diagnosis through to treatment, including a complete package of care tailored to each patient's individual needs. Where possible, all necessary tests will be carried out in one hospital visit to enable your Consultant to reach a diagnosis and to discuss with you any treatment that may be required.

Do I need a GP referral?

A referral from a GP or a NHS breast centre is necessary if you have private medical insurance, to ensure that all costs are covered.
