The rapid access breast clinic at the BMI Beardwood Hospital is available to anyone who may require assessment of breast symptoms.
The aim of the clinic is to ensure that anyone who is concerned about any symptoms is seen as soon as possible. Consultant Surgeon Lyndon Jones works alongside other colleagues who specialise in the management of breast disease. The clinic is fully supported by our breast care specialist nurses.
The Rapid Access Breast Clinic is based in the outpatient department at The Beardwood Hospital. Consultant radiologists Richard Dobrashian and Nanda Kumar, along with the rest of the diagnostic Imaging team are available to perform any X-ray tests that the consultants may request. The X-ray department at the Beardwood Hospital has the facility to perform both mammography and breast ultrasound scanning. These tests can usually be performed on the same day, ensuring that patients receive their results as soon as possible.
To book an appointment, you can contact the hospital directly by contacting Elaine Garrett, Private Practice Administrator on 01254 507654 or alternatively you can be referred through your GP. Elaine will find the next available appointment with one of the consultants for you, and if necessary will also follow up your GP referral for you.
The clinic consultation, X-ray investigations and any subsequent surgery that may be required are usually covered by private medical insurance. If you are insured, please contact your insurer to ask whether you are covered for any relevant tests and/or treatment. Please bring with you your insurance documents or any pre-authorisation numbers to your first outpatient appointment.
