LBI Multidisciplinary Breast Team meets every week
It is internationally acknowledged that the care of patients with cancer should be formally reviewed by a specialist team so that patients have the benefit of the range of expert advice needed for high quality care. The LBI Multidisciplinary Breast Team meets every week, bringing together staff with the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to ensure high quality diagnosis, treatment and care. Recommendations are made to guide each patient’s care but the final decision on the way forward is always made by the patient in discussion with their clinician. The LBI MDT ensures that care is seamless, even when different aspects of care are delivered by different clinicians. The MDT also allows us to collect information about the care we provide both for the benefit of the individual patient and for the purposes of audit and research.
