Thank you for supporting breast cancer services at Flinders

Posted 1 Mar 2023

Your support is helping to provide a dedicated space in the Breast and Endocrine Clinic at Flinders Medical Centre to give additional support for the ever-increasing number of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer.

In Australia there are, on average, 57 people diagnosed with breast cancer every day.

The breast clinic at Flinders sees around 7,000 patients each year, including 643 breast surgeries and 237 new breast cancer diagnosis in the last year.

Breast and Endocrine Advanced Nurse Consultant, Amanda Jones, says the new space will provide a private area for care, support and education.

The breast nurses will be able to utilise this space for clinical care, as well as provide education and answer questions about breast cancer, surgery and related treatments. We can also assist with organising timely referrals and offer vital psychosocial support to our patients.
