As Milton Keynes cancer care provider GenesisCare celebrates a decade since opening its doors, they’re proud to support the request of local recruitment business Hireful Ltd, to provide private mammograms to staff aged 40 and over as an optional employee benefit.
GenesisCare Milton Keynes has the only self-referral private mammogram service in the area, for women aged 40 and over who are not experiencing symptoms but want access to early breast screening, or more frequent screening in addition to the regular NHS breast screening programme.
Hireful Ltd recognised the importance of early breast cancer detection following an employee’s breast cancer diagnosis in 2022. Thankfully, the employee underwent treatment and is now living life to the full.
As one of 14 outpatient centres operated by the UK’s leading independent specialist cancer care provider, GenesisCare, the Milton Keynes centre provides timely access to screening services and advanced cancer treatments, including scans, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, prosthetics post-breast surgery, and a one-stop breast clinic for women with breast issues who need tests and answers fast.
Nicole Baynton, Centre Leader at GenesisCare Milton Keynes, said:
“Hireful Ltd’s approach to the wellbeing of their staff is an inspiration, and many other employers are also starting to think this way, particularly as women may want reassurance and peace of mind at a younger age and more frequently.
We first opened our doors to the Milton Keynes community in December 2013 and today provide state-of-the-art cancer care services through our expert clinicians for patients with insurance or those who wish to self-pay, including scans, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, prosthetics post breast surgery and our one-stop breast clinic.”
Sarah Brinkley, Chief Financial Officer at Hireful Ltd said:
“Following our employee’s experience, we’re aware early detection can have a huge impact on the success of treatment. Current NHS breast screening is every three years from age 50, so we went in search of providers who offered screening more often and at a younger age. We have been so impressed with GenesisCare at Milton Keynes, who offer affordable, annual private mammograms for women from age 40 and a breast clinic for women of any age who have breast issues and need tests and answers fast.”
GenesisCare in Milton Keynes has built up a successful and much needed bra fitting and prosthetics service for breast cancer patients post-surgery.
GenesisCare offers patients a world-class standard of care and access to the latest innovative treatments, to achieve the best possible life outcomes.
