Mercy Breast Clinic - Breast Care
Mercy Breast Clinic is a state-of-the-art boutique clinic with a specialist team and a very welcoming atmosphere.
We monitor breast health and offer the services of a specialist breast nurse for clinical examinations to complement the mammogram. Each mammogram is reviewed by one of our specialist breast radiologists on site immediately following the mammogram and discussed with you individually. If necessary, our specialist team will offer further options which may include:
- cyst aspiration
- referral to a specialist breast surgeon
Following your mammogram, each x-ray is reviewed by at least one other specialist breast radiologist.
- Breast Care Nurse - Karen O'Neil and Jane Sieprath are experienced breast care nurses who are on site to support all patients and their families through diagnosis and treatment if needed.
- Medical Radiation Technologists (MRTs) or Radiographers perform your mammography examinations and liaise with the radiologist on your behalf.
- Radiologists are specialist doctors who read and understand your films and do ultrasound on site. They interpret the results of the images, talk to you about them and send a report to your doctor.
- Specialist Breast Surgeons consult in the clinic and patients are referred to them from the radiologist or their family doctor.
- An Oncoplastic Surgeon consults at the clinic and can perform breast reconstruction and breast augmentation surgery. Appointments are arranged through reception.
8.00am to 5.00pm Monday-Friday
Referral from your GP is ideal. Appointments must be made for all mammography and consultations with specialists.
If you feel that you have a problem that needs to be seen urgently we try to see you as soon as possible. Phone and talk to our receptionists who will refer you to the breast care nurse or radiologist if necessary.
To your first appointment:
- please bring previous images if you have them

For breast augmentation surgery please phone reception to book an appointment.
