One of the most common ways in which members of the public are likely to encounter a medical trailer or mobile medical unit is via mobile breast screening units. These have been rolled out across the country by NHS Trusts as a means to encourage and expand the take-up of breast screening. They have encouraged women who may live at some distance from hospitals or other centres to attend screening, saving lives in the process.
Why breast screening is so important
The NHS offers breast screening to help save lives from breast cancer. It spots cancers at an early stage, leading to treatment that prevents the condition from becoming life-threatening. Breast cancer that is spotted early is less likely to lead to a mastectomy, or extensive chemotherapy.
How mobile breast screening units help
The value of mobile breast screening units is that they make the service easier to access. A mobile mammography unit can be moved around an area, meaning that when someone searches for mobile breast screening near me, the location is much closer at hand than they might of imagined. Mobile breast screening units have increased the uptake of breast screening services, which is one reason why health care providers continue to commission new ones. Making an intelligent use of available space, they can be fitted with all of the essential technology and other equipment required to run a busy screening operation. They are a cost-effective way to increase provision, make accessing services easier, and improving the whole experience for staff and visitors alike.
