If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of smell or taste (anosmia) – the advice is to stay at home for 10 days. All members of this household should remain at home for 14 days.

If you think you have symptoms, please do not attend your hospital appointment until you are advised it is safe to do so. Please contact us to rearrange your appointment, or to re-organise treatment and tests.

Attending a results clinic

In most cases, you will get the results of your mammogram or ultrasound on the day of your visit. Otherwise, you will receive your results by post or at one of our results clinics. Waiting for results can be a worrying or stressful time. The Breast Clinic will make every effort to process things quickly so that you have your results as soon as possible.

If you are asked to attend a clinic the results will be explained by one of our team, who may be accompanied by one of our breast care nurses. You may find it helpful to bring a friend or relative with you for this appointment, as sometimes there is lots of information to remember. 

Further tests may also be recommended. The reasons for this will be discussed with you in detail.

Please note that whilst we do try to ensure that you will be seen as promptly as possible, unavoidable delays are occasionally experienced.
