Launch of a New Service For Breast Symptoms

Posted by: stephcarter - Posted on:

From August 21st, there is a new service running for female patients (or those born female and now identifying as a different gender) aged 30+ with new breast symptoms. This is part of the wider ‘right clinician, right time, right place’ initiative and is aimed at improving access to services so that patients with potentially worrying symptoms are seen quickly.

These symptoms may include a new breast lump, breast pain or changes to the skin or nipple area. Pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding will not be eligible to use the service. Similarly, any concerns about skin lesions, infections or abscesses should remain directed to our AMC team via E consult or through reception.

You can self refer to the service by calling 0300 123 0769 and you will be contacted with 48hrs and offered an assessment with the team. This will be via telephone initially and if required, you will then be seen in the breast clinic and undergo any further tests recommended such as a mammogram or ultrasound.

Phone lines are open from 9am – 4pm but there is a voicemail service available if calling outside of these hours.

There is also information on various breast conditions and how to self examine on this page of our website:

Right Clinician, Right Time, Right Place – Who Do I See? – Adelaide Medical Centre

Please be aware that if you contact the surgery for an appointment and meet the criteria above you will be directed to this new service by our reception team on the advice of our clinical team.

Many thanks,

The AMC Partners
