For our customers
- We have developed a screening assessment to advise women if they would benefit from having a mammogram. In line with best practice guidelines, we want to educate the public that women can self-refer from age 40 and receive annual screening to give the best possible chance of catching anything at the earliest stage. 98% of women will survive breast cancer for 5+ years after diagnosis if caught at stage 1 through screening. You can take our screening assessment here.
- Our lead mammographer, Johanna Kelsey, explains the things to look out for when checking your breasts, and talks in more detail about what patients can expect from screening at OneWelbeck. You can view the video and more information here.
- Our webpage on screening highlights the importance of getting screened and illustrates how the OneWelbeck service offers the most technologically advanced equipment and best-in-class patient experience. You can view the webpage and the videos mentioned above here.
- We are holding a webinar on “Breast Cancer Awareness: Screening, Best Practice and Guidelines for Primary Care” for referrers, kindly hosted by Dr Anmol Malhotra, Dr Keshthra Satchithananda, Mr Giles Davies and Johanna Kelsey. This will help raise awareness of the latest screening guidelines for GPs and share the importance of using the latest technological equipment.
- Throughout October we are holding a number of tours for referrers to come into the centre and meet the team and see our brilliant centre.
In the centre
- We have developed a dedicated, easy-to-access screening service on the 6th floor which is priced at £259 for a 3D mammogram. We have the most technologically advanced screening equipment in the UK, which uses AI and allows us to assess breast density ensuring patients are in the safest hands.
- We have created multiple touchpoints throughout the building to make all our OW patients are aware that they can easily self-refer for a mammogram whilst in the centre, with walk-in appointments available to enable a smooth patient experience.
- Breast density is not a topic which is often discussed in breast screening, despite it leading to an increased risk of breast cancer and making it harder to detect abnormalities. The breast screening team have created a leaflet to further educate patients on the importance of density (below).
