Breast screening - if you are aged 50 years and over

The Breast Screening Service is a three year rolling programme which means that it aims to screen all eligible women in each area once every three years. Unfortunately, if a woman turns 50 soon after we have completed screening women in her area; she may be almost 53 years of age before she receives her first automatic invitation.

Women who find themselves in this situation are welcome to self refer but may have to travel further to access a screening unit.

If you are 50 years or over and would like to make an appointment for breast screening: Please contact the Screening Centre, Irvine.
