Breast Screening

Breast screening is organised by our local breast screening service

This is NOT arranged by the surgery.

The Beds and Herts Breast Screening Service is part of the National Breast Screening Programme and provides a free breast screening service for well women aged between 50 and 70, serving residents in all of Bedfordshire and most of Hertfordshire. They aim to provide and promote an efficient and effective, high quality breast screening service, to all eligible women within a caring environment.

Breast screening aims to find breast cancer at an early stage, often before there are any symptoms. To do this, x-rays are taken of each breast (mammogram). Early detection may often mean simpler and more successful treatment
