Screening appointments

If you are between 50 and up to your 71st birthday, you will receive a letter once every three years, inviting you to have a breast screening mammogram. You do not have to contact us to, we will ensure that you receive your invitation at the appropriate time. From your 71st birthday we will not automatically invite you and you can request screening every 3 years by contacting your local breast screening unit. As the risk of breast cancer does not stop at 71, please consider the importance of continuing with your breast screening.

IMPORTANT: If you have any concerns about changes to your breasts, please speak with your GP as soon as possible. Please do not wait for an appointment with the screening service.

We have a range of different locations where we can offer you a breast screening mammogram. If, following your mammogram you are invited for an assessment appointment your appointment will be available only at the Nightingale Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital. Find out more about our screening locations.

When you receive your invitation letter it will give you an appointment for a specific screening location, appointment date and time. You can request a change using the appointment request form.
