The GenesisCare Breast Service

Our breast service is led by a team of experienced consultants and is designed around rapid access pathways that cover every stage and all modalities from early detection to advanced therapies.  This includes a same-day, triple diagnostic assessment service for people concerned about their breasts with seamless progression from comprehensive diagnosis to breast cancer treatment if needed.

Our clinical protocols are based on the best practice of centres of excellence across the world and include advanced and innovative techniques as standard, alongside modern therapeutic approaches. Together with a growing healthcare professional community in the UK, we are implementing these evidence-based treatment protocols across our network of specialist outpatient oncology centres and designing new ways to improve patient outcomes.

Biopsy results in five days

If a biopsy is required, the results will be made available within five days of the biopsy at a follow-up appointment with the consultant. A copy of these results will also be shared with the patient’s GP.

All biopsy results are discussed at a GenesisCare Breast Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) meeting, which includes surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and oncologists where treatment plans are discussed and appropriate action is agreed.

If no evidence of breast cancer is found, the results are discussed with the patient in detail together with any advice or reassurances. If the biopsy does show the presence of a cancer, we are able to discuss with the patient the next steps required to move towards appropriate treatment.

Advanced diagnostics

Seamless access to a comprehensive diagnostic pathway

Following a positive diagnosis at a One Stop Breast Clinic, our rapid access pathways include all diagnostic modalities, including MRI and PET/CT as required, to allow us to make decisions with the patient about potential treatment pathways, and to start that treatment in the most timely manner.

The aim of this multi-modality approach is to ensure prompt diagnosis and commencement of treatment – optimising the outcome for every patient following their cancer diagnosis.

Advanced diagnostics

  • Contrast-enhanced mammography
  • Stereotactic biopsy
  • MRI breast
  • PET/CT
