This chapter provides a first hand account of the experience of setting up and running nurse-led breast cancer family history clinics within primary care in a culturally and socially diverse inner city area of London. The nurse specialists running the service reflect on their experience over the 30 months that the service has been in place highlighting the benefits (such as accessibility for patients, ease of referral for health professionals and targeted screening and genetic counselling) and challenges (such as promoting the service, establishing the trust of local health professionals and finding affordable clinic space).
