Bra Fitting Service

Following breast surgery, many ladies experience tenderness, swelling or have sensitive scar tissue, which makes it very important to have a well-fitting and comfortable bra.  We can arrange for you to see a Breast Care Fitting Expert from Amoena, Trulife or Nicola Jane who are all experts in mastectomy and post-surgery prostheses, bras and swimwear.

All of the services listed above are by appointment only and take place in our Macmillan Information Centres at Darlington Memorial Hospital or Chester le Street Hospital in a comfortable, private room.
