What are the proposals for breast surgery?
All breast surgery would take place under a single specialist team based at the Royal Liverpool Hospital. Previously, surgery also took place at Aintree Hospital – this was temporarily stopped as a result of COVID-19 measures, but if the change went ahead it wouldn’t return in the future. Outpatient clinics would not be affected and would continue to be offered at Aintree and the Royal Hospitals.
Watch Dr Geraldine Mitchell, Oncoplastic and Reconstructive Breast Surgeon and Surgical Divisional Medical Director at Liverpool University Hospitals, explain the proposals for breast surgery.
