Breast Care Centre

Breast Care Centre Butterfly  Logo

The Breast Care Centre is a purpose built unit at the Glenfield Hospital which brings together the specialist staff needed to provide the majority of all breast care services for the people of Leicestershire.

Opened in 1999, it has four mammography rooms, three film reading rooms, three processing rooms, three ultrasound rooms and five clinic suites.

Ward 24 in the main hospital is where patients stay if surgical procedures are required.

The Centre is home to the static breast screening unit and acts as a base for the breast screening services. From here 150,000, 50 to 70 year old women from the whole of Leicestershire receive their breast screening invitations. 

Three mobile breast screening vans which visit thirteen different sites throughout the county are also managed from the centre. These vans enable the women from all areas in Leicestershire relatively easy access to this vital service. Please find below maps for the locations our mobile screening vans visit - please note that we are in the process of updating these maps.

During the last year, 770 women in Leicestershire were diagnosed and treated by our dedicated multidisciplinary team of staff that specialise in breast disease at the Breast Care Centre.

Other services provided within the Centre include family history/moderate risk/post-operative surveillance screening, lymphodema clinic, seroma clinic, reconstruction and oncology. A breast prosthetic fitting service is also available.
