The unit provides the base site for the North Yorkshire breast screening programme which covers the beautiful North Yorkshire region with a 3 year population of around 131,000. It is also the centre for the provision of a comprehensive symptomatic breast service to the population of York, providing one stop and follow up services, as well as some outreach clinics at Scarborough hospital. We are proud of our excellent links with the symptomatic breast services across the region.

Our current team consists of 5 consultant Radiologists, 4 consultant Radiographers, 5 surgeons 4 undertaking oncoplastic surgery, radiographers , breast care nurses, admin team and MDT and has close links to pathology and oncology

The unit is forward thinking and participates in research with several, on-going research projects supported by research nurses. A key element of the associate specialist role is to support excellence by learning and audit
