Breast Care Centre
The UPMC Beacon Breast Care Centre was established in August 2008. Our aim at the Breast Care Centre is to provide all patients with swift access to our triple assessment clinic and specialist team of Consultant Surgeons, Consultant Radiologists, Consultant Pathologists, Radiographers and Breast Care Nurse Specialists, ensuring delivery of best standards of care. At the Breast Care Centre we have the most up to date Radiology Systems featuring Digital Radiology Suites with advanced Mammography and Ultrasound.
We run weekly triple assessment clinics whereby women who are referred to us by their General Practitioner will meet all the necessary disciplines on the day and have all necessary tests performed.
Triple assessment involves clinical examination by a Consultant breast surgeon, followed by imaging to include mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy if necessary.
All patients seen at our breast care triple assessment clinic are discussed at weekly multidisciplinary team meetings. Patients who have a diagnosis of breast disease have access to a multidisciplinary team of experts including surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, reconstruction and physiotherapy.
Access to our Breast Care Centre is through GP referral and a form which can be faxed directly to our Breast Care Nurse Specialist. Please call your GP about referral to UPMC Beacon.
