The NNUH breast unit handles breast cancer referrals from GPs across the region.
The number of patients it sees each month has almost doubled in the last five years, and a new dedicated breast unit is urgently needed.
The Boudicca Appeal will help fund this unit, and will mean:
Faster diagnosis and treatment
State-of-the-art equipment and same-day diagnostic tests so that patients only need attend the clinic once
An enhanced environment
Purpose-built and spacious waiting, consultation, counselling and treatment spaces dedicated to breast cancer patients
A better experience for patients
Less stress and anxiety for patients and their families whilst waiting for results, and fewer return visits
