Breast cancer screening

Breast cancer screening will be in our area soon – if you are due for screening you should have received a letter from the screening team asking you to book an appointment.

Unfortunately due to delays with Covid-19 the screening team are unable to offer screening to those over 70 at the present time.

If you have any physical disability or learning disability the screening team are able to offer pre appointment appointments. This allows you to look at the facilities and see what the screening appointment would involve to try and ease any worries or concerns you may have.

Please contact the screening team if you need further assistance for appointments and they will be able to help.

If you have not had a letter but think you are due for breast screening please ring the team on: 0191 2820202.

***Please note if you do not response to the two invitations you will be marked as a did not attend and no further letters will be sent to you for this screening period.***
