Bupa has extended its network of specialist centres for breast cancer to include Bupa Cromwell Hospital, London.
The centres offer Bupa UK Insurance customers an appointment with a consultant within two working days of calling its Cancer Direct Access service and all initial diagnostic tests are completed in one appointment.
Londoners are less likely than national average to identify eight common signs of breast cancer, research has found. Difficulties accessing services coupled with lack of awareness mean women are delaying seeking medical help.
Other specialist centres are at Harley Street Clinic, Marylebone; The Lister Hospital, Chelsea; The London Bridge Hospital; The Wellington Hospital, St John’s Wood; The Wilmslow Hospital, Cheshire, where treatment is delivered at The Christie Private Care, part of HCA Healthcare UK.
