Denise Van Outen will officially open the new digital mammography suite at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital this morning. Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital is the first private hospital in Dorset to have the Hologic Dimensions digital mammography system.
Patients are able to self-refer for a mammogram with the new system from the age of 40. All other referrals must be through either a GP or Consultant. Self-referrals must be non-symptomatic.
