Welcome to the breast services team

The London Clinic breast team is a dedicated, patient focused team, committed to delivering the highest standards of quality care. Every member of the team is very experienced and highly skilled.

Breast Car​e Clinical Nurse Specialists

Cancer is not easy to deal with and different people find that they may need help in different ways. Our breast care clinical nurse specialists are available to support patients through this journey.

They are also there to support patients in making the progression back to their everyday lives. 

The London Clinic has two breast care clinical nurse specialists who provide patients and their families with individualised information, care and support before, during and after the various stages of their treatment. 

Each patient is given a named person in the breast care nurse team who they can contact at any time. Patients are encouraged to keep in touch between long-term follow up appointments if there is anything at all they are worried about.

Here are just some of the ways that our breast care clinical nurse specialists support their patients:

  • Advice and someone to listen at the time of diagnosis
  • Guiding patients through often complex surgical treatment-related decisions about breast reconstruction
  • Post-operative care
  • Potential follow-on treatment like chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal therapy
  • Advice on potential side effects of all aspects of breast cancer treatment
  • Personal bra and prosthesis fitting service
  • Nurse-led lymphoedema assessment service

Patients are encouraged to keep in touch between long-term follow up appointments if there is anything at all they are worried about.

Breast reconstruct​ion

Staff nurse Sally Clark offers an Areola Micropigmentation service for our breast surgery patients. This is a type of semi-permanent colour which is applied to the skin to recreate the colour and shape of the areola after a breast reconstruction. This service has been received very positively by our patients and consultants alike.
