Southern DHB Breast Care - Otago
The Breast Care Service (on the Dunedin Hospital site) has a “one day work-up” of patients who have been referred, which is efficient and patient-friendly. Results are provided in a more timely fashion and the amount of travel for appointments reduced.
One-day work-up includes clinical assessment by the surgical team with appropriate imaging and any required laboratory samples to enable accurate diagnosis as quickly as possible. Patients will then be booked for other procedures if necessary.
