Breast Care Nurses

Specialist Nurses in breast care are present at clinics. They are able to provide information, advice, education and support to people attending the clinic.

For patients with a diagnosis of breast cancer the Breast Care Nurse can play a vital role and provide specialist support as a 'key worker'. They will give patients time to ask questions and to talk about how their diagnosis is affecting them. Breast Care Nurses provide this specialist care from the moment a patient is diagnosed and continue to offer support throughout their care. 

Patients will be given a number for a Breast Care Nurse / Key Worker who they can contact if they require support or information.  This number is linked to an answer machine. Callers should leave a message with their name and telephone number and a Breast Care Nurse will ring back as soon as possible.
