BREAST SCREENING

Added on 07 January 2019

NHS Breast Screening Programme

The local NHS Breast Screening team is now in the area, inviting women aged about 50-70 who are registered with the Surgery for routine Breast Screening, which we strongly advise you to attend.

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 47-49and 71-73 in this area are being sent letters inviting them for screening and giving them information about the trial.

If you would like to opt out of the trial or if you have not been invited but would like to be screened while the team is in the area, please use the contact page on the website to inform us.

More information about screening and the trials can be found at: www.cancerscreening.nhs.uk
