We have 2 consultation room ( breast surgeon and group decision) and one more to ultrasonography and nurse appointments. We have no permanent beds; our patients, when needed, are interned in Gynecology/Senology nursery or Oncology in advanced breast cancer in need. Oncology, radiotherapy and pathology and nuclear medicine are done in the original services. All weeks we have a meeting with pathologist, breast surgeons(all gynaecologists) and radiologist to case review. All weeks, Wednesday, we have a group decision appointment where all new cases are discussed, and a clinical/surgical decision is taken and communicated and approved by the de patient. There is always a written form. We have weekly 12h surgery and additional 12h/month for benign pathology. We have developed a breast data system with Minho University but problems with data protection and the decision of Portuguese Senology Society we are waiting for administrative approval to internalize a data system already in use in some Portuguese breast units. However, all the data is collected by the data manager for the National Oncology registry.
