Dr Eliot Sims, Clinical Oncologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital

This week on Bodytalk, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Jules Bottazzi chatted to Dr Eliot Sims, who is a clinical oncologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital, about his work with breast cancer patients. Dr Sims talked about how oncologists decide on courses of treatment and explained how surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy work in the fight against breast cancer.

More than 45,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the UK, which makes breast cancer the most common female cancer in the country. However, survival rates have improved greatly in recent years.
Spire Hartswood Hospital is offering women £20 off the price of a breast health check until the end of this year. To find out more, call 01277 266 764 or visit
