October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We managed to catch up with Dr Liana Roodt, Breast and Endocrine surgeon in Cape Town, for a chat regarding the progress that Project Flamingo has made over the past decade in addressing the delayed surgery lists for breast cancer patients in Groote Schuur and Livingstone hospitals. She also shares some candid (and personal) thoughts regarding the NHI and how she and other doctors are feeling about this controversial issue.
