Nurse-led wound clinics
Our nurses lead some of our clinics.
This may involve attending the hospital several times a week for patients:
- who have had reconstruction surgery
- who have complex wound healing issues
- who are unsuitable to be treated by a practice nurse at their GP surgery
Follow-up clinics are for patients who have completed their breast cancer treatment. These are currently consultant (doctor) led.
Follow-up appointments usually take place three years, and then five years, after a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Generally, these appointments take place face-to-face - however, appointments can take place over telephone, on request.
Patients will have the opportunity to discuss any issues or worries they might have post-treatment.
