Breast Care Unit Breast Unit is a small friendly unit, located next to Eaglestone restaurant, opposite the rose garden. Women called back from screening with worrying mammograms or who report significant clinical symptoms are assessed on site. Our clinic offers diagnostics and treatment for both men and women by our highly skilled multidisciplinary team.

The unit has state of the art digital equipment and carry out most operations, such as lump removals and excision biopsies on a day case unit. We also have a ward for overnight stays and complex surgeries. There are specialist breast care nurses, a physiotherapist and dietician to support patients before and after surgery.

We have excellent customer feedback and we’d welcome your views and will actively address your comments to make positive changes.
