Ms Laws

Come and hear Ms Siobhan Laws, consultant oncoplastic surgeon at Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, talk about advances and improvements in breast services and answer any questions you may have.

As the NHS celebrates its landmark 70th birthday this year, Ms Laws’ talk on breast services will look at the progress made over the years to improve diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer as well as consider possible future innovations in this area. 

These talks are free and an opportunity for patients and the public to hear expert consultants talk about their specialist area of health, meet the Trust’s management team and to ask questions.

Siobhan Laws has been working as a consultant since 2002. Oncoplastic surgeons combine the expertise of cancer and plastic surgery to provide specialist advice and treatment locally. She has been at the forefront of bringing new techniques and technology to the Breast Unit, developing the breast service, has been involved in cutting edge research and was a clinical tutor to the graduate entry medical school. Currently she is director of research for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT).
