Together they can complete all the necessary Clinical assessments and breast imaging needed along with any tissue biopsy for palpable or radiological abnormalities. For over 95 % of patients after a 30 min visit, they can be fully reassured and discharged. For a small number of patients a biopsy is needed and taken at the same time, with the results available within 5 working days.
