Breast cancer now affects 1 in every 9 women in the UK, so it is likely that you may already have experienced supporting an employee through diagnosis and treatment. As London's leading private hospital network and the largest private cancer network outside the NHS, HCA work with many companies to provide a range of diagnostic and treatment options for their female employees (and spouses).
The HCA breast screen
The following screening programme is designed for women over the age of 40 years:
- Patients receive a breast care awareness pack
- A specially qualified radiographer conducts a digital mammogram which will provide a detailed image of the breast tissue
- A written report is prepared and sent to the patient's GP - this will normally be within 10 days. The GP will make contact with the patient in the event that any follow-up is required
To discuss screening for your workforce please call the HCA Commercial Team on 020 7616 4848.
