Breast Screening Service (NHS)
Screening is the process of identifying people who appear healthy but may be at increased risk of a disease or condition.
The NHS breast screening programme (BSP) is an NHS population screening programme.
Screening is different to diagnosis and there will always be some false positive and false negative results.
The NHS BSP offers screening to all women aged 50 to 70.

Screening units do not offer drop-in screening on request. Breast screening for women aged 50-70 is by appointment only. Invitations for screening are sent automatically to women registered with a GP. Women aged over 70 can make their own screening appointments throught their GP or nearest screening unit. Women with breast symptoms should see their GP.
