Breast Screening

Dudley, Wolverhampton and South West Staffordshire Breast Screening Service

Russells Hall Hospital is the headquarters of the Dudley, Wolverhampton and South West Staffordshire Breast Screening Service.

The service comprises of three mobile screening units based at different community locations throughout the region.

Images taken on the mobile units are sent to assessment centres for reporting and ladies are asked to return, if necessary, to the nearest assessment centre for further review and potential treatment. The service works to local, regional and national Quality Assurance standards and utilises modern technology for the best achievable outcome for ladies.

Ladies aged between 50-70 who have a GP within the area are invited to attend for screening every 3 years at a mobile unit or static site if necessary.
