This information provides guidance on the management of Breast patients in the Torbay and South Devon catchment area during the Covid-19 pandemic. The information is based on:
All symptomatic breast referrals can be referred according to usual guidelines.
This includes patients with breast pain or family history, where a separate referral pathway already exists.
Service running as normal.
All new routine referrals will be clinically triaged and will either be added to a waiting list or, if appropriate, A&G will be given.
Please ensure that a practice-based system is in place to check daily for returning referrals with A&G.
Prior to making a routine referral, please ensure that any appropriate Policy or CRG has been reviewed and that all the suggested investigations and management options have been considered.
Existing new and follow-up routine appointments have been cancelled and changed to telephone / video consultation where appropriate.
Request advice as normal.
