 When to visit us

Your GP or non-GP specialist is always your first step in seeking treatment for any condition. You will be referred to our service if your treating doctor feels that your treatment requires the input of Breast Surgeon/Physician Specialist. Once we receive the referral it will be reviewed by a doctor and you will be notified of the outcome and next steps. Please allow at least 4 weeks for this process to be undertaken or contact us directly if urgent. We see patients either face to face or via telehealth – our team will let you know what the best option is for you.
