Your Views: Reconfiguration of Breast Screening, Assessment and Symptomatic services

ent and Symptomatic services

Warrington and Halton Hospital Trust  are proposing to reconfigure Breast Screening, Assessment and Symptomatic services to develop a Centre of Excellence based at The Captain sir Tom Moore Building (CSTM) at the Halton Hospital site.

CMTC.jpgThe proposals will see Breast Assessment and Symptomatic Assessment Services moved from Warrington hospital to the Captain Sir Tom Moore Building (CSTM) at The Halton Hospital site to:

  • ensure patients receive the best specialist care in a more supportive environment
  • allows for more efficient use of equipment and scheduling
  • create a rapid service, which will lead to shorter waits for patients due to improved efficiency with the same level of staffing.
  • Futureproof the service structure against predicted higher future demand.

WHH NHS proposals will co-locate on the same site:Breast Service Plan crop 1.jpg

  • Screening and Assessment Services
  • Symptomatic Breast Surgery Service.
  • The CANtreat Chemotherapy service
  • Macmillan Delamere Cancer Support and Information Centre.

This provides patients with the option of having all stages of assessment, advice and treatment on the same site.
