It has now been almost 3 years since the ladies at our surgery were last called for breast screening. We have received information from the Cancer Screening Programme that they will soon commence screening for our practice cohort once again.
The projected date for Woodford’s breast screening period is 4th - 28th July 2017, though this may be subject to change. Eligible women from will be invited to appointments at the mobile screening unit at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital.
The Breast Screening Service identifies eligible women and makes the appointments automatically.
At Woodford Medical Centre, we encourage women who qualify for the screening to attend. If for any reason you miss the opportunity to attend the sessions offered, please contact the surgery and speak to a Practice Nurse as they will be able to advise you how to access the service.
