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 34 in the main hospital building is where patients stay if surgical procedures are required.

You can find accessibility information for Ward 34 here. 

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

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. 

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.

If you feel unwell and would find it difficult to attend your scheduled breast screening appointment, please contact the office on 0116 258 3644. The team will be happy to rearrange the appointment for you.
