NHS Breast Screening Programme
Our female patients aged 50-70 are currently being invited to attend for breast screening. Look out for your letter in the post.
Breast screening could save your life so please try and attend your appointment.
A research trial is also being done to help assess the benefits and risks of screening women slightly younger than 50 and older than 70. About half the women aged 47-49 and half aged 71-73 in this area are being sent letters inviting them for screening and giving them information about the trial.
You can opt out of the trial, or, if you have not been invited but would like to be screened please phone 01524 583050/583047.
