BreastHealth UK was established to offer women a greater range of breast screening and diagnostic treatments than are currently available on the NHS.
Long term survival rates from breast cancer are improving but this is dependent on early identification and the implementation of an appropriate treatment pathway designed for the individual.
BreastHealth UK combines the experience of leading breast surgeons, radiologists, genetic counsellors and other breast specialists from across UK with the latest approaches and techniques.
