Breast Screening

Breast Screening for eligible patients is due to start. You should receive a letter in the post.

Breast screening or a mammogram is a free test offered to women over 50 and checks to make sure your breasts are healthy. The test can identify any changes in your breast that may be too small to see or feel.

If you are over 53 and have not yet been contacted for your breast screening, please contact your local screening service. After you reach the age of 71 you will no longer be automatically invited for screening however the service is still available should you wish to continue having mammograms.
