Breast Care Nurses

Our Breast Care Nurses give you and your relatives all the advice and support you need during the entire course of your illness: from the initial diagnosis to the completion of treatment and even following discharge from hospital. Our nurses have specialist qualifications in the nursing and care of breast cancer patients, as well as their families, and are available to answer your questions not just about medical treatment, but also on simply getting through the day.
Your Breast Care Nurse also helps you deal with psychological and social difficulties, such as your body image and any role changes in your family life and employment. They also show you how to look after scars following breast surgery and offer advice in selecting suitable support wear. In addition, your Breast Cancer Nurse informs you about other options to aid your recovery, such as the workshop “Look Good … Feel Better”, where professional beauty consultants take patients through a 12-step beauty programme.
Our Breast Care Nurses work closely with social services and the psycho-oncology team, acting as the main contact point for advice and support even after your treatment has ended.
