The NHS Breast Screening Programme saves 1,400 lives every year. All women aged 50 and over are entitled to breast screening every three years.
As part of the National Breast Screening Programme the age range is being extended from 47-50 and 70-73 and women are being selected randomly per GP practice within this age range. You will soon be receiving an appointment through the post; the appointment can be changed to be more convenient to you if required.
Any lady over 70 is entitled to breast screening and is able to make any appointment on the number below as long as it’s not been less than 3 years.
