Within the United Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust there are two main breast imaging units providing symptomatic breast services. They provide a facility for two different teams of breast surgeons and historically operate with some differences in protocols.
There are now plans for the reconfiguration of the breast service within the United Leeds Teaching Hospital, which is hopefully to take place early in 2005, with the amalgamation of the two breast imaging units on one site. Prior to this, many changes are required for the merge to be successful.
The proposal for this proffered poster is to outline the plan for the amalgamation of the differing protocols. We aim to identify some of the major differences, outline the method of change in practice through the development of new joint protocols and determine implementation pathways
