Screening is organised according to where you live or by your GP practice. Once every three years your GP practice will be contacted and all women eligible for screening will be invited.
You do not have to contact us to make an appointment, we will ensure that you receive your invitation at the appropriate time. The screening programme offers women over 70 a free breast screen every 3 years. Some women over 70 may get sent an invitation, however if they don't, we would encourage them to make a further appointment.
If you would like to know whether you will be invited soon you can look at the screening schedule at the bottom of this page. If it has been over three years since your last breast screening appointment then please contact us.
We have a range of different locations where you can be screened and a range of appointment dates and times. We try to invite you to a screening clinic that is convenient for most women at your GP practice. We appreciate that this may not always suit everyone.
When you receive your invitation letter you will see that we have already allocated you a specific screening location, appointment date and time. If you find this appointment inconvenient then please complete the appointment request form so we can arrange an alternative location, date or time.
Not every woman will receive an appointment as soon as she is 47. You will receive your first appointment before your 50th birthday and therefore there is no need to contact us for an appointment.
