Contact Form

Make an enquiry
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 aims to invite all women aged 50 up to their 71st birthday for breast screening once every three years.  Women over the age of 71 will not be sent an invitation but are encouraged to call the unit to make an appointment that suits them.  

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.

Some ladies will receive an invitation letter asking them to call the Breast Screening Unit to book an appointment at one of our locations at a date and time convenient to them.  Alternatively, some ladies will receive an invitation letter with a specific screening location, appointment date and time already allocated.  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 50. You will receive your first appointment before your 53rd birthday and therefore there is no need to contact us for an appointment.
