WOULD YOU LIKE A FULL BREAST CHECK TODAY?
Unfortunately, with the current strain on the NHS, many patients with breast concerns are having difficulty accessing their GP or an NHS Breast Specialist. If you have found a breast lump, or if you simply want a breast check, we can arrange this for your today.
At Thames Breast Clinic we understand how stressful this waiting period can be. We have created an affordable package to offer a rapid assessment at our One-Stop Diagnostic Clinic for £595 at selected hospitals. No GP referral is needed; simply call us on 0800 612 9490 and we will book you in straight away.
ARE YOU WAITING FOR BREAST CANCER SURGERY ON THE NHS?
For patients who have been diagnosed with a breast cancer we can offer breast cancer surgery within days at a private hospital from £2,995. The process is simple and straightforward and finance options are available.
We will obtain and review all your biopsy results and multidisciplinary (MDT) plan from your NHS unit. Surgery can be booked within days. To arrange this, please call the office on 0800 612 9490 or use the contact form on this page.
IF I HAVE SURGERY PRIVATELY, CAN I STILL RETURN TO THE NHS FOR THE REST OF MY TREATMENTS?
Yes you can. Once you recovered from your surgery, we will ensure all your results are sent back to your NHS unit so that you can move onto the next phase of your treatment (such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy) back in the NHS. The process is swift and seamless and is used frequently by patients who simply want to speed up their surgery by going privately.
WILL TRANSFERING MY CARE BACK TO THE NHS CAUSE A DELAY IN MY TREATMENT?
No. This is because all patients (private & NHS) who have had breast cancer surgery need between 4 to 6 weeks to heal before their next treatment (chemotherapy, radiotherapy) begins. This allows ample time to safely and efficiently transfer your care back to your local NHS breast unit.
CAN I CHOOSE TO STAY IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR FOR MY OTHER TREATMENTS AFTER SURGERY?
Yes if you wish. The private hospitals will arrange a personalised quote for you based on the treatment recommended to you by the Thames Breast Clinic Oncologists.
CAN I HAVE THE BREAST RECONSTRUCTION OR ONCOPLASTIC SURGERY PRIVATELY?
Of course you can. Our team has a highly experienced oncoplastic surgeon with years of experience who can offer you the full range of surgical options.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN NHS & PRIVATE CARE?
Apart from a private room and having the same Consultant look after you throughout your treatment, there are many other ways the Thames Breast Clinic service differs from the NHS:
