Story

The Breast Centre at University Hospital Llandough treats between 450 and 500 new breast cancer patients every year. At a time when patients may be very anxious they tell us it makes a huge difference to them to have a streamlined service with everything under one roof. The Breast Centre Appeal raised the money to build the Centre, which is designed around the needs of our patients and houses out-patient clinics and diagnostic radiology services together. Patients can have a mammogram or ultrasound and get their results on the same day; if further investigations are needed these can also be carried out at the Centre. Donations to the Breast Centre Appeal are used to provide special bras for mastectomy and reconstruction patients and offer complementary therapies & confidence sessions. Donations have also provided a physiotherapist for one on one sessions as an exercise prescription service, the first of its kind in Wales, and a gym for our patients having surgery for breast cancer.
