If you are self funding your treatment then you do not need to get a GP referral to access our breast clinic. Simply request an appointment by completing our enquiry form, or alternatively call 01689 490 111 and a member of our team will be able to assist you.
If you have private medical insurance, we advise you contact your provider before booking to confirm whether you need a referral letter from your GP before booking an appointment at our Breast Clinic.

No this will not always be the case. At LycaHealth Orpington, these are the ones we have available to help guide us to a full diagnose and treatment pathway. It will all depend on the results, in some cases we might need to have all scans to provide a clear result or in other cases results might be clear from only having one scan.
If you refer back to the scans and tests section, it explains what each one does and how they differ.
