First patients being seen in the Bristol Breast Care Centre

Monday, 16 June 2014

The first patients are now being seen in the new Bristol Breast Care Centre at Southmead Hospital.

Staff from the centre in the old Southmead Hospital building moved into their new Beaufort House home last week.

Work on the refurbishment of the historic building is nearing completion ready to bring all breast care services for the Bristol area together under one roof.

Avon Breast Screening will be moving into the building later this summer bringing screening, diagnosis and after-care support together in one place to improve the experience of cancer patients.

The Bristol Breast Care Centre has been designed to make it a sensitive and comfortable environment for patients.

It is being supported by the Bristol Breast Care Centre Appeal.
