Bupa Cromwell Hospital offers a breast care service run by a breast care nurse consultant who offers support and practical help to people dealing with any breast condition, particularly breast cancer.
Patients can see our breast care nurse consultant, for many different reasons. Some come for breast screening; some may have questions as they go through further diagnostic testing; others have been diagnosed with a breast condition and need support as they undergo surgery or treatment.
Our breast care nurse has considerable experience in all aspects of breast care. Her calm, friendly yet professional approach makes her a great support for patients.
Women going through diagnosis, treatment or after-care for a breast condition can benefit from a wealth of knowledge. Our breast care nurse has spent many years helping patients through the experience of breast cancer, including as an oncology nurse, and can help to guide those who are making decisions about surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.
She is also a single point of contact for patients with breast cancer, can organise appointments, tests and results and generally co-ordinate your journey through the hospital.

Prosthesis and bra-fitting service
Our nurse consultant offers a special service for women who have had any form of breast surgery who require bra fitting, a partial prosthesis or a full prosthesis. We will help ensure you are wearing the correct fitting bra and can advise on prostheses to even out breast shapes (post-breast conserving surgery) or for full prostheses following mastectomy. This service is open to all women regardless of where they had their surgery.
