The changes have been brought about against a background of an increasing disease incidence coupled with increasing political aspirations from patients and their relatives. This paper focuses on organisational aspects of breast cancer care, screening, induction and high-dose chemotherapy, clinical trials, genetics, training of surgical and nonsurgical oncologists and future prospects.
