Parapet Breast Service

Introduction

The Parapet Breast Unit is a dedicated diagnostic and outpatient facility based on the King Edward VII site in Windsor and is part of Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals Trust. The service provides screening, as part of the NHS Breast Screening Programme, alongside diagnostic, treatment and follow-up care for the residents of East Berkshire

The Parapet opened its doors in 1991 as a result of the Government’s decision to fund a National breast Screening Programme for women. This coincided with a local team of breast specialists, committing to improve the standards of care for women referred for investigation of a breast symptom.

The reputation of The Parapet for providing a quality patient focused service in pleasant surroundings, coupled with the increased awareness and acceptance of the National Breast Screening Programme, has resulted in considerable expansion of the service and it’s facilities over the past few years to ensure we meet demand whilst ensuring that we consistently meet National Standards relating to quality of services and waiting times targets.
