Mary McCormack, practice manager, is extremely experienced and has been with the practice since 2005.
When you call to make an appointment, Mary will ask you a few preliminary questions about yourself, your symptoms and any previous investigations you may have had. This is to enable us to not only appropriately prioritise your appointment but also to enable us to arrange any necessary imaging investigations to be performed on the day of your appointment prior to your consultation with Miss O’Brien if indicated. Mary will reinforce the importance of bringing any previous breast imaging (mammograms/ultrasounds) with you to your appointment. This is especially important if you have had recent breast imaging that shows an abnormality. It may be necessary to delay your appointment until you are able to obtain your x-rays as they form an essential component of the breast assessment. The aim is to streamline the process as much as possible, minimising the number of unnecessary visits.
