About Ms Jennifer Hu

Ms Jennifer Hu is a consultant oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgeon at Cromwell Hospital. She is extremely experienced and currently treats over 150 breast cancers per year.

She has been an oncoplastic and reconstruction breast consultant at Barts Health NHS Trust since 2020 and was the Clinical Lead for the Breast Services for seven years from 2014. In 2013, she was appointed to be and remains as the Lead Screening Surgeon for the Central and East London NHS Breast Screening Service.

Ms Hu undertook her surgical training mainly in London after graduating from the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital. She also has a PhD in the treatment of breast cancer, using a novel oncolytic virus.

She cares for patients with benign breast problems, early, and advanced breast cancer, and has developed an expertise in family history of breast cancer and mainstreaming breast cancer genetics. Ms Hu tailors her advice of treatment to the individual and supports her patients in making complex decisions in the management of their disease. Her practice is fully integrated into the multidisciplinary team and is supported by specialist breast radiologists and pathologists, plastic surgeons, oncologists, clinical psychologists, geneticists, and nurse specialists.

The initial consultation of every breast patient is face-to-face and personalised with clinical assessment with the detailed discussion of family history, imaging, and biopsy if indicated. For appropriate follow-up appointments, these can be conducted via video or telephone. It is also possible to be assessed and treated by an all-female team.
