Best Breast team: Implementing a nurse led Recovery Package programme for breast cancer patients in a rural symptomatic unit : Northern Devon Healthcare Trust

We are a breast care team based in a Trust that NHS England has identified as unavoidably small due to our remoteness. Although our team is small, our ambition is to provide best practice and equity for our patients diagnosed with breast cancer. This included offering an appropriate stratified follow-up Nurse-led recovery package with open access availability which would enhance the patients breast cancer follow up journey , and benefit both primary and secondary care As a team we have a history of innovation and adaptability, partly due to our size but also due from a culture of necessity.
