Women between the ages of 47-49 and over the age of 70 can self-refer to the breast screening program. Bredon Hill Surgery uses Hereford and Worcester screening service (http://www.bscreen.org.uk)
The NHS Breast Screening Programme began in 1988. It provides free breast screening every three years for all women aged 50 and over. A randomised trial evaluating the effects of extending the age range for breast screening is now underway. This means women aged 47-49 and 71-73 may receive an invitation for screening. Women in these age ranges who do not receive an invitation can contact us to request an appointment.
The Breast Screening service can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01527 488 055.
