Claire takes on The Great North Run
Claire Halliday will take part in the world’s largest half marathon, The Great North Run this September. Claire is a Breast Centre patient who has chosen to do the...
The Breast Centre at University Hospital Llandough treats between 450 and 500 new breast cancer patients every year; for initial investigations, follow-up treatment and patients returning for results.
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.
The new Breast Centre houses out-patient clinics and diagnostic radiology services together. Patients can have a mammogram or ultrasound and get their results on the same day; then 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, pamper evenings, lingerie evenings and style and confidence sessions for women having gone through treatment for breast cancer.
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.
