At your recent out-patient appointment with the Breast Team, it will have been explained to you, that you are transferring onto patient-initiated follow-up (PIFU).
This type of follow-up has been specially designed, so you are more in control. It provides you with direct access to guidance when you most need it. Your normal routine will not be disrupted by regular routine hospital appointments; instead you can quickly gain access to the Breast Team when you need to. It is based on evidence showing that there are no advantages to regular, fixed time follow-up in hospital for women and men that are well after treatment for breast cancer.
