Miss Harleen Deol Appointed Chairwoman of Cancer Network
Thursday 19 May 2016
Miss Deol has just been elected Chairwoman for the Beds & Herts Breast Network Cancer Group. This means that she leads development of new guidelines for breast cancer management, reviews patient pathways and identifies areas for improvement. She then represents our Network (which covers E & N Herts NHS Trust, West Herts NHS Trust, Watford & Luton & Dunstable NHS Trust) in the East of England, working with the Cancer Strategic Clinical Network. She currently holds meetings twice a year at the moment.
Miss Harleen Deol is a breast surgeon specialising in the diagnosis and management of breast cancer. Consultant Breast Surgeon at both Pinehill Hospital in Hitchin and Rivers Hospital in Sawbridgeworth, she is passionate about her subject - Breast Cancer. She frequently runs free breast awareness talks at Pinehill demonstrating how to self check and changes that women should look out for. She is keen to 'spread the word' and encourage all women to check themselves and see their GP, or a breast specialist, urgently if they notice any change in their breast. The sooner any problem is detected, the better the overall outcome. She also specialises in reconstructive plastic surgery following mastectomies and breast surgery.
This is a testament to her dedication to the subject and her desire to make breast care a top priority for all women. Everyone at Pinehill and Rivers Hospitals congratulate Harleen on this fantastic achievement.
