We are a leading centre for the treatment of breast cancer in the UK.
We treat people with all breast problems. This includes:
- breast cancer
- non-cancerous issues
Our care is based on the latest evidence and follows national and international guidelines.
Our one-stop clinics combine examinations and tests in one visit. The aim is to give you a diagnosis or management plan before you leave.
If we recommend surgery, our breast surgeons and nurse specialists will talk to you about it.
If you need breast reconstruction we'll offer this at the same time as your breast surgery. We'll use implants or your own tissue.
You may need to stay in hospital on one of our wards during your treatment.
Sarah ward is where you'll usually stay if you need to after breast surgery.
We're committed to providing you with personalised cancer care. You can read more about what this means on our cancer care and support page.

Research and clinical trials
Our consultants are involved in many areas of breast cancer research. We are part of King's Health Partners, an academic health sciences centre.
You may be asked to take part in one of our clinical trials or research projects. If you do not wish to take part, this will not affect your treatment.
Donating tissue for research
If you are having a breast biopsy (taking a sample of cells using a needle), we may ask if we can take some extra tissue for research.
This is known as biobanking. Researchers can use the extra tissue for analysis to find better ways to treat breast problems. It helps us understand what causes cancer and which treatment options are likely to work best.
If you do not wish to take part, it will not affect your treatment. Find out more about biobanking tissue for research.
