LARCC extend their specialist post-breast cancer care services to Whelehans in Mullingar
Posted by Brady Bunch on
To satisfy a growing local need, LARCC launched their new Breast Care Service here in the midlands region in 2008. Prior to this, women in the midlands who required breast care support services following breast surgery, had to travel to bigger centres like Dublin to obtain specialist breast care services such as prosthesis and bra fitting. LARCC’s confidential hassle free local service provides women with access to a comprehensive range of products and clothing through the support of qualified consultant fitters.
Breast care service now open in Mullingar
LARCC are delighted to announce that in addition to offering their breast care services in the tranquil setting of their Multyfarnham headquarters, they are extending these support services to Mullingar. LARCC have teamed up with Whelehans Pharmacy in Mullingar to offer breast care support services in Whelehans purpose built and private consultation facility located to the rear of their Pearse St premises.
Eamonn Brady, owner at Whelehans explains that “this new service came about from feedback received from our customers who had fought breast cancer successfully and felt that it would be a great help to be able access specialist after care support services here in Mullingar. As a result of this feedback, I discussed the possibility with LARCC of extending their service to Mullingar”
Eamonn continues “I feel that this service really fits with our ethos here in Whelehans. Our aim is to offer professional care and advice in a convenient local setting. We aim to offer the personal touch that you often find lacking in the world of multinational chains. LARCC are renowned for the psychological and emotional support they provide to their clients. The homely atmosphere LARCC provide at their retreat and cancer care centre in Multyfarnham is unrivalled. The aim is to replicate this level of care and attention in a convenient town centre location.”
The service is delivered by two members of the LARCC staff, a nurse and a therapist, who have both undertaken additional specialist training to become consultant fitters.
LARCC’s breast care service at Whelehans will be the same service that LARCC offer in Multyfarnham. This includes on site consultation, breast form prosthesis fitting, bra measuring and fitting and discussion and support.
The service in Mullingar will be offered via a personal private appointment at the monthly clinic held at Whelehans consultation facility. Telephone support and advice is also available from the LARCC team.
