The symptomatic clinics, also known as the Fast Lane Breast Clinic, take place on a Wednesday and Friday at the breast screening unit in Altnagelvin Hospital.
Any patient who attends the clinic will have been referred there by their GP with a Breast Symptom.
At a Fast Lane Clinic every patient will have a triple assessment available. This means
- The breast will be examined by a Breast Clinician/Doctor
- They will have their breast imaged either by mammography and/or Ultrasound
- Some patients may require further intervention e.g. need a needle biopsy test
At the Fast Lane Clinic you will receive the results of any Mammography and Ultrasound examinations before you leave.
