Breast Clinical Nurse Specialist

Our multi-disciplinary team includes Breast Clinical Nurse Specialists, working collaboratively with consultants to ensure every patient receives a personalised, tailored treatment plan with one to one support before, during and after surgery. We hold regular Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) meetings to ensure the best course of treatment for our patients, aiming to achieve the best possible clinical outcomes.

The role of a Breast Nurse Specialist is crucial in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach to care.  Amelia Cook provides patients with one to one specialist care, support and guidance at every step of their journey, including after they have returned home. Working closely with patients, their families, consultants, nurses and physiotherapists, Amelia ensures breast health patients receive the best possible attention, aiming to achieve the best clinical outcomes.

Breast Therapy Service

As part of the Breast Therapy Service offered here at King Edward VII’s Hospital, our breast Physiotherapist will aim to see you for a pre-operative session either face to face or via zoom. All breast surgery patients will be offered a follow-up appointment with our breast Physiotherapist around 2 weeks post-surgery to ensure you have the best healing experience.

Breast screening and diagnostics
