State-of-the-art digital breast screening vans have been set up in Slough and Maidenhead.

The vans are situated on Farnham Road, Slough, and at St Marks Hospital, St Marks Road, Maidenhead. All the radiographers are women, and the units operate as female only environments.

Screening manager at the Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospital Trust, Claire John, said: "We are trying to encourage women to use the mobile units, especially in Slough where the uptake isn't as good as it could be

."Women can be scared to go to hospital to attend a screening appointment but the units are lovely, calm environments where women are at ease throughout the process."
