Why women’s health matters to you

Whether you have a gynaecological problem, want to discuss your family planning options, or would like some dietary advice, our team of healthcare professionals are here to help you.

Prevention or early diagnosis is better than cure. Regular checking of your breasts and cervix can also help reduce your risk of developing cancers that are among the leading causes of premature death for women. Breast and cervical screening are believed to save 1,500 and 4,500 lives a year respectively.


Why choose Spire for women’s health?

With empathy and respect, we offer fast and easy access to screening, investigations and innovative treatments for a number of gynecological problems concerning you.

Almost all of our centres have digital mammograms, which convert the X-ray into a digital image, allowing the picture to be manipulated.
