The service provides diagnostic and therapeutic treatment for patients referred from Leeds and surrounding areas who may have a disorder of the breast.

A tertiary referral service is provided for more complex cases referred from surrounding hospitals, and a service is provided for asymptomatic women with a strong family history of breast cancer.

Specialist staff provide support to patients diagnosed with breast problems before, during and after treatment.  A prosthetic fitting service is also available.

Close links exist with other specialist services, including: radiology, pathology, plastic surgery, oncology, clinical genetics and palliative care.
