Breast Services

Located in a newly refurbished unit within Clatterbridge Hospital, this service is a centre of excellence for diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. It houses the latest in medical technology including three state of the art digital mammography machines and two new ultrasound machines.

The Wirral Breast Centre is the second largest unit in the North West of England and works closely with NHS colleagues at the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre (also located on the Clatterbridge Health Park). It screens around 13,000 women per year and sees approximately 3000 new symptomatic patient referrals per year. Out of this number about 400 patients (screening and symptomatic) will be diagnosed with breast cancer.
