Breast Screening in Manchester

Breast Health serviceFor most people, breast health can create worry and anxiety. At BMI The Alexandra Hospital we run six one-stop clinics per week for patients who require urgent assessment of breast symptoms in Manchester, Cheshire or further afield in the North West.

The Consultant Breast Surgeons who provide this service are:

Please note, Professor Andrew Baildam also offers a comprehensive breast service which is not part of this clinic on a Wednesday morning at the hospital.

What happens at the breast clinic?

At your consultation you will be assessed by one of our Consultant Breast Surgeons who will then recommend which tests need to be carried out to help identify the cause of the symptoms in the breast.  If a mammogram or ultrasound is required, tests and results are provided on the same day. Should you need cell sampling, results will be provided within 48 hours. 

Our specialist breast care nurses are also on hand should you wish to discuss any breast related queries. This is particularly for patients who have been found to have a cancer and may need to talk through or clarify their diagnosis along with its implications, surgery and treatment options or just for general support.
