The investment to improve the experience of patients by bringing together breast screening in Warrington in a single purpose-built location is the culmination of months of work by Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (WHH) and a range of other partners. The additional clinic room, new mammography screening machine and extra space created for the service at Bath Street mean patients can now expect reduced waits in an extension to the existing breast screening service in the accessible town centre location. Patients from the Trust’s Experts by Experience programme were invited to input into the design at different points in the project to ensure it meets the varied needs of all patients.

The Captain Sir Tom Moore Building (formerly known as Cheshire and Merseyside Treatment Centre) at the rear of Halton General Hospital is home to our new state of the art Breast Care Centre which was opened in July 2021. The centre has 2 new mammography rooms, 2 ultrasound clinic rooms, consultation and counselling rooms, which will ensure that patients receive the best specialist care in a dedicated and supportive setting. This new unit will ensure our patients receive first class specialist care in a fantastic new environment. Breast Screening and Assessment clinics, along with Rapid Access Symptomatic Clinics, will operate from these new improved facilities, with benefits for both patients and staff.
