London Breast Institute
The London Breast Institute at the Princess Grace Hospital sets new standards of delivery for breast care in the independent sector. This involves demonstrable and audited excellence of the three essential components required - medical staffing, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, and research activity.
Since being the first breast unit in the UK to install and use Full Digital Mammography, the Princess Grace Hospital has maintained its leading position in the equipment field and is regularly visited by other UK centres.
Platinum levels of required standards have been set for eligibility of staff to work in the unit as well as volume levels of unit throughput to maintain skill and expertise.
With such unparalleled levels of staff and equipment, the Institute must also fulfill its logical potential to contribute to the future of breast care by carrying out properly conducted and meaningful research. Several of the Institute staff already have major International profiles and will take their place along with chosen colleagues from Europe and the UK on the International Research Board to supervise and produce important and published work. An open- forum Annual Scientific Meeting will be held to present their progress and findings.
