Breast screening is an essential activity

We are inviting those who have been waiting the longest first, so if you are due your 3 yearly routine breast screening appointment, rest assured that you will receive an invitation in due course. We are accepting self-referrals for clients over the age of 71.

If you’re experiencing symptoms that concern you please stay indoors, avoid contact with others and ring NHS 111 or go online for advice.
