Face-to-face consultations are now taking place at the charity’s service centre at Eglantine Avenue in Belfast as well as in Londonderry. Cancer Focus NI is also providing an online consultations and fittings service via Zoom for women who are unable to travel.

Debbie Leslie, bra and swimwear fitting coordinator, Cancer Focus NI, said: “After surgery and treatment for breast cancer, some women feel less confident about their body and self-image after a very tough time in their lives. Feeling good in your clothes can make a real difference, which is why Cancer Focus NI provides this specialist fitting service to help women find the right bras and swimwear. We have a wide range of styles and help women find the right garment, in the right size, to suit them, so they can continue to wear the clothes they love. This patient support service is completely free and totally private.

“We understand that some women will feel anxious about returning to face-to-face appointments. I want to reassure them that we have specially designated rooms that can be easily wiped down after each appointment and we are fully kitted out with PPE. I will talk through our new procedures with our clients before they attend, adhering to all the appropriate government guidelines.

“Already our clients have been saying how glad they are that we are resuming business.” Anyone who would like to use this service should email [email protected] or call 07933 202 131.
