Liz O'Riordan

Retired Breast Cancer Surgeon and Breast Cancer Patient
Liz O’Riordan is an international speaker, broadcaster and award-winning co-author of ‘The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer: How to Feel Empowered and Take Control’ (Penguin) with Professor Trisha Greenhalgh. In 2015 (aged 40) she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer whilst working as a consultant oncoplastic breast surgeon in Ipswich. In 2018 she had a locoregional recurrence on her chest wall. The side effects of treatment forced her to retire as a surgeon in 2019. During chemotherapy she started an award-winning blog about her experiences (www.liz.oriordan.co.uk) and talks all over the world about how to improve patient care. Liz is known for talking about subjects no-one else will cover, such as sex, death and recurrence. She is also a keen sportswoman and is passionate about promoting the benefits of exercise for cancer patients.
