Best-BRA is finally open to recruitment! West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust was the first site to open, and we would like to wish them the best of luck with recruitment and congratulate them on being the first site to open. Best-BRA is a pilot RCT which randomises women to either a pre-pectoral implant-based breast reconstruction or a subpectoral implant-based reconstruction following mastectomy (see Figure 1). As more sites across the UK are beginning to restart the set-up of non-urgent public health studies, we are experiencing a lot more interest in our study and are very excited to welcome and support new sites as they come on board.
