Patient Access

Breast Screening

Starting in February, our female patients aged between 50 and 70 will be called to Nelson Mandela Place for Breast Screening. You will receive two letters from Breast Screening, one telling you that you will be invited and one letter with the appointment. The Broomhill Practice would like to encourage all our female patients to take up this opportunity.

About one in eight women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. There's a good chance of recovery if it's detected in its early stages. Breast screening aims to find breast cancers early. It uses an X-ray test called a mammogram that can spot cancers when they are too small to see or feel.

Although invitations are automatically sent to women between 50-70, women 71 years and over can self refer by calling the Breast Screening service on 0141 572 5800.

If you wish to discuss this with the practice nurse or GP then please contact the surgery on 0141 339 3626.
