Secondary Breast Cancer Service
The Secondary Breast Service at the Royal Surrey Hospital looks after patients whose breast cancer has spread to other parts of the body such as their liver, bones lung or brain.
It is thought that 35,000 women in the UK live with secondary breast cancer, and this is likely to increase as breast cancer survival rates improve.
Secondary Breast Cancer Pledge
The team at the Royal Surrey has been instrumental in working with Breast Cancer Now and Breast Cancer Care to establish a Breast Cancer Pledge.
Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Now and Samia al Qadhi, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Care, said:
“We are delighted that the Royal Surrey County Hospital has pledged to achieve top standards of care for people living with secondary breast cancer.
“Those living with the disease require specialist support to address their complex needs and the uncertainty they face about the future.
“It is wonderful that patients sit at the heart of this pioneering initiative and that we’re helping to ensure they receive the best treatment and care.”
