Breast screening is the process of using an X-ray (also known as a mammogram) for the purpose of diagnosing breast cancer at an early stage.

The NHS National Breast Screening Programme offers routine breast screening to all women between the ages of 50 and 70, every 3 years. InHealth is proud to deliver 3 NHS Breast Screening Services – North & East Devon, Outer North East London, and Surrey & North East Hampshire from mobile and static units. The programme saves over 1400 lives every year.

We use digital mammography which allows us to capture highly detailed images of the breast so that abnormalities can be identified more easily. Images of suspicious areas can be enhanced and magnified to assist the detection of abnormalities.

All our breast screening units are easily accessible for all women. We can offer reasonable adjustments to accommodate individual needs and requirements, including extended appointment times and easy to read information leaflets for women with learning disabilities attending breast screening at a mobile unit or a breast screening centre.

We continuously invest in emerging technology and use advanced digital breast tomosynthesis for more accurate imaging. We were the first to deliver a fully digital mobile breast screening service in the UK virtually eliminating the need to recall patients due to inadequate image quality.

Our teams of specialist Breast Screening Care nurses provide support, information and education for patients and their carers/family on breast cancer and breast conditions throughout the process of investigation and diagnosis.

Our Breast Screening Assessment Clinics are staffed by dedicated multi-disciplinary teams of Consultant Radiologists, Associate Breast Clinicians, experienced Radiographers, clinical and administration staff, recalling women to obtain a definitive diagnosis of all potential screen detected abnormalities. This is achieved by following the principles of triple assessment – mammography/ultrasound, clinical examination and needle biopsy.

We carry out Breast Screening MRIs for those women under the surveillance part of the breast screening programme or are deemed as genetically high risk to confirm the extent of previously discovered cancers/abnormalities.

We have extensive experience in delivering geographically based screening programmes across the UK including Diabetic Eye Screening in Dorset, East Anglia, Essex, Hampshire, London and Portsmouth. We support the National Bowel Cancer Screening Service and deliver AAA screening services in London and Surrey.
