PATIENTS who have experienced breast surgery will have the opportunity ask questions at a new patient forum.

The patient information forum, led by breast surgery consultant, Amar Deshpande, will give those who are immediately affected by breast surgery, including their families and carers, to ask questions and raise any concerns they may not have raised in their initial clinician appointment.

Mr Deshpande said: "This forum will give patients and others involved a relaxed environment in which they can join with other patients and get the support and the information that they need at this time."

There will be free tea, coffee and biscuits at the forum at Wigan, Wrightington and Leigh NHS Trust’s Thomas Linacre Outpatient Centre in Wigan on September 4 at 6.30pm.

To register your interest please contact the Breast Care nurses on 01942 774720 or alternatively drop in to the session.
