New Rose Centre Opens

South West London Breast Screening Service is moving.

New Rose CentreSince October 2011 the South West London Breast Screening Service has been based in a new unit called ‘The Rose Centre,’ on the St George’s Hospital site.

The Rose Centre has a purpose built suite for screening women local to St George’s Hospital. It also has a dedicated breast diagnostic unit for women from South West London who require further investigations following screening and for those women referred to the St George’s Symptomatic Breast Unit.

The Rose Centre has been named after the breast cancer researcher and advocate of women’s choice, Rose Kushner. A public campaign to name the new breast diagnostic unit at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, attracted nearly 400 votes, of which more that 50% were for the ‘Rose Centre.’

“Early detection of breast cancer is the key to successful treatment and this unit will provide all the tests women need in one place at one time, and give them their results quickly. This will help reduce anxiety for women and allow the team to fully investigate any problems more efficiently.”

Our telephone number is the same 02037582024.

What is a Mammography


The Rose Centre opened in 2011. This modern facility provides Breast Screening for women local to St.Georges Hospital. The centre is also a diagnostic centre for all women screened in South West London. Having been formerly based at the Duchess of Kent Unit for many years it was a welcome move to this site.
