Women from our practice are due for breast screening and we just wanted you to know about this excellent service that is provided please see the attached advert.
 
If you receive an appointment and it is not a convenient time, please call the Breast Screening Unit on 02476 967200 to rearrange or email the service on bss@uhcw.nhs.uk . The team understand that people have hectic lives and they want to offer an appointment to suit you, such as early evenings or some Saturdays so please call the friendly team to re-book or to enquire about the service.
 
The whole screening appointment lasts no more than 10 minutes; you will be welcomed by friendly female practitioners who will ask a few questions and then you will be taken into the x-ray room where an x-ray (mammogram) will be taken of each breast. Your results will be sent through the post to you within a couple of weeks.
 
The Breast Screening service is free and really does save lives.
