Breast Cancer MDT

The Breast Cancer Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) is a well-established group of experts with a specialist role in the diagnosis, treatment and management of people with breast cancer.

The team comprises doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who manage the treatment of breast cancers in Oxfordshire.

The team meets every Wednesday to discuss, in confidence, newly referred patients with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer. The MDT meetings offer a forum for the team members to plan and agree a recommended programme of treatment specific to individual patient needs.

This approach ensures that all necessary investigations are carried out as quickly as possible and the best available treatment is offered. Treatment options are then discussed with the patient and their family at a subsequent appointment, which is often later that week.

The Breast Cancer MDT links with all those engaged in breast cancer care within the community and primary care, and offers specialist advice to other breast cancer specialists within the Thames Valley Cancer Network when requested.

The Breast Cancer MDT currently includes the following core members.
