London Breast Screening


Screening appointments

If you are between 50 and 70 years old, you will receive an appointment once every three years, inviting you to have a breast screening mammogram. You do not have to contact us to make an appointment, we will ensure that you receive your invitation at the appropriate time.

Please note due to COVID-19, there are restrictions in place. Please do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes before your appointment and you will not be able to bring anyone else unless you require a formal carer.

IMPORTANT: If you have any concerns about concerns about changes to your breasts, please speak with your GP as soon as possible. Please do not wait for an appointment with the screening service. If you have breast pain, more information is available www.rmpartners.nhs.uk/new-video-to-help-understand-breast-pain

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, we are not able to offer self-referral appointments at the moment. Due to the large backlog of women needing screening, only women in the invited age-eligible screening age (50 to their 71st birthday) will be invited for screening. This situation is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Some of our previous screening sites are in COVID 'red' areas, you may be therefore be offered an appointment at another location.

What safety measures are in place for when I attend my screening appointment?
• We have reduced the number of women booked into a clinic
• Social distancing is maintained
• Clinical team to wear the correct PPE whilst undertaking the screening procedure
• Women to wear masks at all times during their appointment
• Equipment cleaned down after every appointment
• Temperature checks at some locations
