In recent years the ABS has developed its symptomatic guidelines into Surgical Guidelines for the Management of Breast Cancer to ensure that treatment standards are the same regardless of whether patients were diagnosed through the NHS Breast Screening Programme or symptomatically.
In recent years it has also produced a Yearbook to update its members on the work of the Association, its audits and other areas of interest.
The ABS will be providing detailed guidance on the following topics in due course. While this is being developed the following guidance may be of use.
Please note, where a document is described as an 'ABS Consensus Statement', this refers to an agreement between ABS members after debate at an ABS Conference or ABS MDT Meeting. An 'ABS Summary Document' refers to a document created by ABS Committees.
