The Project Flamingo team aim to do timely surgery for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients – currently achieved by funded catch-up surgery lists performed at Groote Schuur Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town (paying for theatre time and nursing staff.) This is to compensate for the tremendous strain on theatre and staff resources that have led to waiting times of up to 12 weeks for surgery in 2010. Thanks to Project Flamingo, the waiting time for surgery is now at 2-4 weeks at Groote Schuur and they hope to see similar results at Tygerberg soon!
