Multi-disciplinary team

In order to provide the highest level of care possible, a team of people are involved in the care of breast cancer patients. This team is known as a multi-disciplinary team (MDT). The team consists of:

  • Consultant Breast Surgeons
  • Consultant Breast Radiologists
  • Radiographers
  • Pathologists / Cytologists
  • Oncologists
  • Breast Care Nurses
  • Breast Nurse Practitioner
  • Administration Staff 

The Breast MDT meet each Friday afternoon in Belfast City Hospital to discuss patients who are suspected to have or are diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as patients with non cancerous breast diseases.

The Breast MDT discuss each patient's case in detail. This ensures that there is an individualised care plan put in place for every patient. A record of this discussion will be sent to the patient's GP.
