Breast Care Centre
At North Bristol NHS Trust Breast Care Centre, located at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, support staff and volunteers are committed to providing the very best possible treatment and care in a friendly, relaxed environment.
Our approach is a patient-centred team approach, and we are constantly striving to offer:
- The best service possible
- Innovative new ways of providing breast care and to improve the experience of our patients.
From diagnosis through treatment and after-care, we work with our patients every step of the way, providing, support and guidelines for women and men.
Located in the main hospital corridor at Southmead Hospital, Bristol we are dedicated to diagnosing and treating breast conditions.
The Breast Care Centre, the first of its kind in the South West, opened in 1995 as a self-contained, dedicated unit where patients can be seen by various specialists – all experts in diverse aspects of the management of breast disease.
It was one of the first centres in the country to launch one-stop clinics, has twice been awarded the prestigious Charter Mark as a centre of excellence and received a Gold Star on the Peer Review.
If you have a concern about your breasts, or if you have been diagnosed with cancer, or any other condition, you probably want to find out as much information as you can.
