The Health Minister says the Island now has breast care services to be proud of.

It follows the appointment of a Consultant General Surgeon with a special interest in breast surgery, who has been in her role at Noble's for just over a month.

Waiting lists and waiting times are already falling for breast patients.

The new doctor also means less patients are being sent to the UK, as breast reconstruction surgery can now be carried out on the Island.

David Anderson says there have been budget and timescale challenges to get the appointment in place [play clip]
