Lauren Sutherland QC speaking at main Breast Surgery conference

Ampersand’s Lauren Sutherland QC has been invited to speak at the Association of Breast Surgery Conference 2019, taking place on 13th and 14th May in Glasgow.

Speaking in Session 4 on “Key messages for everyday practice: Clinical Practice & Standards” Lauren will discuss Medico-legal cases.

The Association of Breast Surgery (ABS) is the association for healthcare professionals caring for any person with a breast problem.

The ABS is a charitable organisation dedicated to setting and advancing standards in breast care and breast surgery, including cosmetic (aesthetic) breast surgery. Their work ranges from breast diagnostic clinics, where any woman or man who has a breast concern can be seen and assessed, through to complex oncoplastic breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction.

The ABS wants to ensure that any individual with a breast problem receives the very best possible care. They aim to achieve this by providing ongoing specialist breast education and training to allow ABS members to remain up-to-date with the latest research developments, new treatments and surgical techniques. They also encourage best practice by working with NICE, the CQC and other associations and charities interested in breast care, to develop clinical guidelines based on high quality research recommendations from around the world. In addition, they drive up standards and reduce regional variations in care by regularly auditing the performance of individuals and breast teams. The conferences promote good practice through information sharing and networking.

Full details on the conference and how to book can be found on the ABS website here.
