Breast Screening

When will you be invited for breast screening

All women aged 50 up to their 71st birthday are invited for breast screening every 3 years. First invitations to screening are  sometime between your 50th and 53rd birthdays.

If you are aged 71 or over, you are still at risk of breast cancer. Although you will no longer receive screening invitations after your 71st birthday, you can still have breast screening every 3 years. You will need to ask your local breast screening unit for an appointment.

Our local breast screening services will contact you by either text or letter to invite you to an appointment.
