Breast Reconstruction

Re-establishing Breast Reconstruction Services post lockdown

Arrangements are now in hand to modify the national prioritisation table appropriately in order to re-establish breast reconstruction services both as part of the primary surgery for breast cancer and for those patients requiring delayed reconstruction. 

We are most grateful to all who contributed to this guidance. As with all guidance at this time, the documents and prioritisation will be modified to reflect experience and developments.
