When We Screen

The South Lancashire Breast Screening Service invites approximately 30,000  women per year for screening. 

Screening is organised according to your GP practice in all boroughs (PCTs). Once every three years your GP practice will be contacted and all women eligible for screening will be invited. You should receive your first appointment before your 53rd birthday and therefore there is no need to contact us for an appointment.

Women over the age of 70 are encouraged to continue with breast screening and must contact the screening office once every three years to arrange an appointment.
