About our group:
Our group is new to Keeping Abreast and we are looking forward to being able to support ladies from in and around Liverpool. We offer a friendly and informal opportunity for you to speak to women who have been through similar experiences and see the results of reconstructive surgery. We can also offer support to women who have had other types of breast surgery after a cancer diagnosis.
Where we meet:
Breast Unit, Third Floor, Linda McCartney Centre, Royal Liverpool University Hospital
When we meet:
We meet on the last Tuesday of every month, at 6pm. We also offer a bra fitting service on the same days as our groups which starts at 5pm – booking is essential for this. The dates for our 2019 meetings are as follows;
Tuesday 28th May
Tuesday 25th June
Tuesday 30th July
Tuesday 27th August
Tuesday 24th September
Tuesday 29th October
Tuesday 26th October
Want to help?
As a new group we are on the look out for a number of volunteers to join us to help run the group so we can offer support to more women considering and undergoing breast cancer. Ideally we are looking for some previous reconstruction patients who would be willing to talk to others about your journey, and also some individuals to help with the administrative side of things too. If you might be interested please contact either Karen, Susan or the Keeping Abreast Head Office on the numbers below.
Alternatively you can send us a message via our Volunteers Page here

Nick of Time:
As well as supporting women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and looking to have an immediate or delayed reconstruction, Keeping Abreast also support those women looking to have elective reconstruction surgery due the discovery of a breast cancer gene. This support is provided by our sister group ‘Nick of Time’. It is likely that there will be elective surgery patients at your local group but if you would like specific information or further details please contact Nick of Time.
