Women aged 70 to 79 - Information for women who may have missed an invitation to a screen

Some women aged between 70 and 79 are being offered the opportunity for a breast screen. This is because some women did not receive an invitation for a final screen, as part of the routine NHS Breast Screening Programme.

The Breast Screening Programme usually invites women to have a screen once every 3 years when aged between 50 and 70 (up to their 71st birthday). This means women will usually receive their final screen sometime between their 68th and 71st birthdays.

Most women can be reassured that they will have received their final invitation but there are some women, now aged 70 to 79, who have missed an invitation due to a problem that dates back to 2009.

All affected women registered with a GP will receive a letter by the end of May with further information.

A helpline is also available: 0800 169 2692.

Registering your Pregnancy

With effect from Monday 25th January 2016 the Peterborough Maternity Services will become a paperless process.

This means that you will now need to register your pregnancy online at the Peterborough and Stamford hospital portal and complete the Maternity Self-Referral Form .

You can access the Maternity Self-Referral Form on the Peterborough City Hospital website by clicking here .

The Maternity Self-Referral Form must be completed and submitted in order for your notes to be created and passed to the practice electronically; you will no longer be given a Pregnancy Pack.

Once you have submitted your form online you will then need to contact the Community Clerk at the practice who can be contacted on 01778 579010 who will arrange an appointment with one of our Midwives.  This appointment can take up to one and a half hours.

Please note, that in accordance with NICE guidelines all pregnant women are advised to take Folic Acid and Vitamin D supplements which are available from Pharmacies and all major Supermarkets.
