Who we screen

Women aged 50 - 70 (up to 71st birthday)

All women between 50 and 71 years who are registered with a GP are eligible for screening. A list is compiled from GP records, so it is important to make sure your details are correct.

The invitation is sent out automatically, so there is no need to phone and make your own appointment. All women will receive their first invitation for a mammogram sometime between their 50th and 53rd birthdays.

We invite doctor’s practices for screening in turn, so women will not necessarily get their invitation in the year that they turn 50. As long as you are registered with a GP, you will receive an invitation before your 53rd birthday.

Women 71 and over

If you are 71 or older and have not been screened for 3 years then you can still request an appointment by contacting us on 0161 291 4444 (9am - 6pm Monday – Friday)

Please remember that anyone of any age with concerns about their breasts should contact their GP immediately.
