The Breast Surgery department consists of a small but efficient team of dedicated surgeons, doctors and specialist nurses who work within a multi-disciplinary team. The Breast Service is based at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford where there are operating theatre provision, inpatient and day case admitting capacity and outpatients. Outpatients are supported by a dedicated Radiology team and provision is also provided at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for outpatients.
Breast sits within the Surgical Centre which is managed by a full time Centre Manger with Clinical Directors and Clinical Leads who have dedicated time for management duties. The trust is committed to clinical engagement and all Consultants are expected to participate in relevant management activities. Key management decisions are discussed at the Trust’s Management Executive, on which the Medical Director and Clinical Directors sit.
Consultants are responsible to their Centre Clinical Director, who is supported by specialty Lead Clinicians. The Senior Medical Staff Committee and Local Negotiating Committee ensure that the views of the Consultant body are represented at all times.
