Disruption to Manx Breast Clinic service

Tue, 14 Nov 2023

The Manx Breast Clinic is currently experiencing some disruption due to staffing issues, particularly in its ability to run the regular ‘One Stop’ assessment clinic for new referrals into the service, as well as recalls from the Breast Screening service.

Temporary doctor cover has been secured within the clinic, however this will mean some delays in first appointment and screening recall appointments due to lack of immediate locum availability.

All forthcoming ‘One Stop’ appointments will have to be cancelled and rebooked with a short delay in being seen by the Breast Team.

Women requiring a follow-up appointment following their Breast Screening mammogram will be provided an appointment as soon as possible – please note that this appointment may be at the Nightingale Breast Centre in Manchester.

The team are currently working to rebook patients affected by this issue – currently it is anticipating no more than a seven day delay in being seen within the Breast Clinic. This delay is due to the availability of replacement consultants coming from the UK to assist.

Manx Care’s ability to undertake breast cancer surgery is unaffected.
