Please help us fund a dedicated breast unit at Salisbury District Hospital.

 

We’ve reached the initial £750,000 target to build Salisbury’s first breast unit. But the fundraising doesn’t stop here! Please help us establish an ongoing fund to provide additional enhancements and equipment and improve support services for patients. Your support will help ensure the thousands of local women, and some men, that will need to use the Unit, receive the very best possible care.

 

Why do we need a dedicated Breast Unit?

1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancers treated in Salisbury have increased by nearly 40% in the last two years. Salisbury District Hospital’s specialist breast team offer excellent care but the number of patients they see is growing fast. Now they urgently need a dedicated Breast Unit to provide even better, quicker and more dignified treatment for over 4,500 local women, and a small number of men, each year.

What will the benefits be?

A dedicated Breast Unit will offer:

Faster diagnosis and treatment
  • Same day diagnosis
  • No need to visit other departments or repeatedly dress and undress for mammograms and scans
  • Quicker access to treatment
  • State-of-the-art equipment 

The best possible environment

  • Purpose-built, spacious waiting, diagnostic and treatment rooms dedicated entirely to breast patients
  • Sensitive design and décor creating a calm, light and dignified environment
  • Private spaces to talk, think and reflect
  • Counselling rooms for women who have just been told they have breast cancer
The best possible experience for patients
  • No more anxious waits for results
  • Fewer return visits and more efficient care
  • A tranquil haven where patients can be supported by staff and one another

 
Who will you be helping?
Your support will help over 4,500 local patients each year, from across Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. Perhaps even you, a friend or a member of your family.

 

“Three months after my 26th birthday, I was told I had breast cancer. What happened after was a whirlwind of tests, surgery and treatments. Due to the nature of the cancer, I needed a mastectomy followed by months of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. I am now part-way through 10 years of hormone therapy.
Having cancer can be very isolating. Since my diagnosis I have met some wonderful people and been fortunate to have a lot of support, but it is not easy for everybody to seek such help. That’s why I think a specialist Breast Unit would be a fabulous idea. A place for patients to go without feeling embarrassed, a hub of support and information, and somewhere everything can be done in one place.”

Thank you for the incredible speed, care and attention I received following my referral to the unit recently. Such a pleasant and calm place, like attending a private clinic. I am pleased to say that I was given the all clear.

My wife, Alison Ogden, was diagnosed with Breast cancer in 2009 and it has been a roller coaster ride ever since. She has received superb care ever since.
