October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

At The Park Surgery we would like to make our patients aware of the service that West Sussex Breast Screening Services provide. This information could be helpful to yourself, a family member or a friend.  

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. Most women diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of 50, but younger women can also get breast cancer.

The NHS offers breast screening to save lives from breast cancer.

Screening does this by finding breast cancers at an early stage when they are too small to see or feel. Breast screening uses an x-ray test called a mammogram to check the breast for signs of cancer.

The scan is quick and simple and early detection of cancer may often mean simpler and more successful treatment.

Women aged 50 up to their 71st birthday are invited to have breast screening every three years. If you are over 71 you will not be invited, however should you have any symptoms please contact your GP.

Welcome to our new website

Welcome to our new website, which I hope you agree looks fantastic and I think you will find easier to use.  Obviously, if you have any suggestions or improvements we can make, please do let me know.

The clinicians and staff are still working hard to help fight the coronavirus, we have had to adapt the ways in which we work so that we can protect both our patients and ourselves.  This has been a bit of a challenge but we now have robust social distancing and patient screening procedures in place.

We understand that many of our patients will still have medical needs, which are not related to the coronavirus and I would like to reassure you that all the GP’s and nurses are here, ready to discuss your symptoms or give you any advice you require.

You can still contact us by telephone if you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss your medical needs why not try our newly installed eConsult tool to contact us.  You will find the details here.  This new service also offers around the clock NHS self-help information, signposting to services and a symptom checker.

Keep well and keep safe and remember we are here to help you.

Senior Managing Partner
