This Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will be launching a campaign in support of Breast Cancer Now. As part of the campaign, we will be holding on-site educational activities and free patient events where Breast specialists will speak about different aspects of breast cancer, from prevention to surgery options.
Educational events at New Victoria Hospital
We will be holding three breast health events where our Breast Specialists will talk about breast cancer prevention and surgery options. Patients will have the opportunity to anonymously submit questions concerning symptoms, treatments and any breast cancer related issues during the event registration online.

Meeting the needs of patients
To meet the increasing demand for women’s healthcare, we recently enhanced our One Stop Breast Clinics to offer additional daily appointments with Breast specialists and new diagnostic technology for patients.
We have also partnered with Breast Cancer Now to support their Wear It Pink initiative and promote breast health with patients and staff this October.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women in the UK, accounting for 15% of all cancer diagnoses. We aim to raise awareness on breast cancer risk and support patients along their journey when diagnosed with breast cancer.
