Breast care

Expert-led care and support for the quick assessment, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.


At Bupa Cromwell Hospital, our breast care service is led by expert breast consultants and supported by a dedicated breast clinical nurse specialist.

We offer a full pathway for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer and other breast conditions.

So if you are worried about breast symptoms, our rapid diagnostic service can arrange an appointment with a breast consultant within days. You can then expect a consultation, mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy (if required) all to take place on the same day to give you a quick diagnosis.

Our breast multidisciplinary team meets fortnightly to discuss each breast cancer diagnosis. This means all breast cancer cases are reviewed by a whole team of experts to ensure the best possible treatment and care. The breast multidisciplinary team is led by Prof Robert Leonard, Consultant Medical Oncologist.

You don’t have to have Bupa medical insurance to be treated at the Cromwell. We’re recognised by all major private medical insurers and offer a range of self-pay options.

Bupa Specialist Centre for breast cancer

We are a Bupa Specialist Centre for breast cancer. This means, if you have Bupa UK Insurance you can have an appointment with a consultant within two working days of calling Bupa's Cancer Direct Access service. And you don't need a GP referral.

All initial diagnostic tests are done in one appointment. If you need treatment, it will be provided within 31 days of calling for the first appointment – less than half the time set out in national targets.
