Breast Unit

This unit is one of the largest of its type in the UK, with over 9,000 referrals per year. Most are from the south east of England, but also from other parts of the UK and from all over the world.

Patients are usually directly referred by their GPs for diagnosis and treatment, and for surveillance if at high risk. The Breast Unit aims to deliver the latest high-quality treatment for all stages of breast cancer, and to be at the forefront of international research into the development of new treatments, in the identification of women at high risk, and in breast cancer prevention.

For this reason, the Breast Unit has close links to The Institute of Cancer Research and the Breakthrough Toby Robins Breast Cancer Research Centre.
