The Bolton, Bury and Rochdale Breast Screening Service is run from the Breast Unit at the Royal Bolton Hospital, however to enable women to be screened closer to home, screening is carried out at four sites across the area:
- Breast Unit, Royal Bolton Hospital, Minerva Road, Farnworth, Bolton, BL4 0JR
- Bolton One, Moor Lane, Bolton, BL3 5BN
- Radcliffe Primary Care Centre, 69 Church Street West, Radcliffe, Bury, M26 2SP
- Nye Bevan House, Dowling Street, Rochdale, OL11 1HR
The Breast Screening Unit is situated on the 1st floor at Bolton One. The unit is down the corridor directly opposite the lift on the first floor; or up the stairs and head towards the unmanned reception desk and go to your right.
The Breast Unit is at the end of the corridor on the left.
Radcliffe Primary Care Centre
The Breast Screening Unit is through the main entrance to the back of the area through the Flower Suite. You will usually go through the double doors and approach the reception desk in the Mountain Suite. If the doors are closed, please take a seat in the Flower Suite waiting area. There is no need to book in at the main reception although you can ask them for directions.
There is a car park between the building and the theatre accessed via Seymour Street. It is free to park (July 2016).
The tram stop is 300m away on the Manchester – Bury line. The Radcliffe Bus Station is 5 minutes walk away.
Nye Bevan Primary Care Centre, Rochdale
Sat Navs struggle with this postcode due to the tram lines recently put in place. Try setting Sat Navs on Dowling Street to avoid tram lines and you can enter the building by the side entrance through Cohen Chemist.
The building is beside St Joseph’s Church and opposite Rochdale train station hidden behind the tram stop.
When driving, follow signs to the train station initially from the main roads. Due to the one way system if you approach from Milkstone Street or Tweedale Street and around towards the train station, turn left immediately in front of Haji food store, just before the train station and the taxi rank.
The building car park, accessible via Ann St, is small and busy. There is on-street parking all around this area. There is one hour parking beside the train station, Station Road. Most side streets allow parking for up to two hours. Please avoid the permit only sections.
Train and tram to Rochdale Station. Nye Bevan House is directly across the road.
Rochdale Bus Interchange is 10-15 minute walk. Follow signs to the train station.
