The NHS Breast Screening Programme provides free breast screening every three years for all women in the UK aged 50 to 70. All of the eligible women at Barretts Grove Surgery will be invited for screening at the same time. Around one-and-a-half million women are screened in the UK each year.
Breast screening is a method of detecting breast cancer at a very early stage. Women are invited to attend a special clinic or mobile screening unit to have a mammogram. A mammogram is a special type of X-ray that looks at the tissue of the breast. As it is able to reveal changes too small to be felt, it can potentially detect a change before you or your doctor has noticed anything different.
If you would like any more information on Breast Screening please visit the National Breast Screening Programme website: http://www.cancerscreening.nhs.uk/breastscreen
The purpose of the breast screening programme is to help to save lives: the earlier breast cancer is detected, the better the chances of survival.
You will receive your breast screening appointment in a few weeks.
We would encourage you to attend your appointment when you receive your invitation, or rebook it if the time is not convenient.
If you have already been invited to have a mammogram but did not attend, you can rebook your appointment by ringing the breast screening service on 020 7601 8305 or visit www.celbreastscreening.org.uk.
You can also choose to go to other screening units (such as Barts, Kentish Town, Mile End or Whipps Cross) if they are more convenient (please ask about this when you phone the breast screening service).
