The NHS Breast Screening Service is due in our practice area from March 2016. Breast screening is currently offered to women aged 50-70 in England. However, the NHS is in the process of extending the programme as a trial, offering screening to some women aged 47-73.
You will first be invited for screening between your 50th and 53rd birthday, although in some areas you'll be invited from the age of 47 as part of the trial extension of theprogramme.
If you want to change the appointment you've been given, contact the name and address on your invitation letter.
