Hi Sandra B
Thanks for posting.
Breast reconstruction is being carried out again. However, the availability of different types of breast reconstruction varies from area to area. Your breast care nurse should be able to give you information about the availability of DIEP surgery in your area.
You might be interested in our range of free supportive services.
You are also welcome to call our Helpline if you would like to talk this through or have any further questions. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.
The number is 0808 800 6000 (Text relay prefix 18001).
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.
Please be aware that we will be closed on Monday 31 August due to the bank holiday.

Hi could anyone tell me if DIEP surgery is up and running again as I need it but due to Covid it has been suspended in my area. Many thanks
