Many people feel anxious about coming to the Park Centre for Breast Care and what their appointment here might mean, this is quite natural. 90 percent of breast lumps and other breast symptoms are harmless and require very little treatment, or no treatment at all. We know it’s easier said than done – but please try not to worry.
We try to see everyone as soon as possible after receiving the letter from their GP. If we have given you short notice of your appointment, we do apologise for any inconvenience that may cause.
If you are unable to keep this appointment please let us know by telephoning 01273 664773 as soon as possible. You can also leave a message on the answerphone after 5pm or send us an email at:
breastcareOPD@bsuh.nhs.uk. If you let us know right away, we may be able to give your appointment to another patient.
We will make every effort for you to be seen as near to the time of your appointment as possible. Please be aware that if you have tests, your visit can take from one-three hours.
