Genesis Prevention Centre
Opened in July 2007, The Nightingale Centre and Genesis Prevention Centre is situated on the University Hospital of South Manchester complex in Wythenshawe. It provides a base for one of the most ambitious breast cancer research programmes in Europe.
The centre is headed by three internationally renowned professors, who are leading authorities in their fields. Each professor has a special area of responsibility:
- Professor Tony Howell, the UK’s first Professor of Cancer Prevention
- Professor Gareth Evans, Professor of Clinical Genetics
- Professor Nigel Bundred, Professor of Surgery
The centre offers a state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services to women and men with breast cancer and co-ordinates the NHS breast-screening programme for the Greater Manchester area. There are specially designed consultation, examination, counselling, mammography, radiology and ultrasound rooms. There are also laboratories dedicated to pathology, prosthesis, lymphodema and bone densitometry. As well as this, it provides training facilities aimed at addressing the shortage of breast cancer specialists.
