Surgeon seeks support for dedicated breast care unit

The Island's consultant breast surgeon is asking the Manx public to help fulfil her vision for a dedicated breast care unit at Noble's.

Millie Bello says after 18 months in the post, she's convinced Island patients and health staff deserve their own 'home'.

Ms Belo is hoping to bring a range of services offered to breast cancer patients into a single 'hub' within an extension on the ground floor of the hospital. 

The project has the backing of the health department and the Manx Breast Cancer Support Group, which campaigned for a full-time breast surgeon at Noble's.

Ms Bello says at present, her clinics are scattered around the hospital - and that can mean a dis-jointed service
