Patients rate breast cancer care 'high quality'

  • 1 Comment

Nine out of ten women with breast cancer who undergo mastectomy or breast reconstruction surgery say their care is high quality, according to the third report of the National Mastectomy and Breast Reconstruction Audit.

A survey of nearly 7,000 women, carried out as part of the audit, found 88 per cent were treated with respect and dignity and 90 per cent rated care as excellent or very good.

The report published complication rates for individual hospitals for the first time. It said “no organisation had complication rates that were higher than the expected rate” but noted that 50 organisations could not be listed because of poor data.
