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.

Automated Arrival Kiosks for a Speedy Arrival

Patients are encouraged to use the self-service check-in kiosks when arriving at the Market Deeping surgery for their appointment. There are 2 kiosks at the main reception and 1 kiosk at the treatment room reception.

The Automated Arrival Kiosks allow automatic check-in for appointments (less emergency appointments) without having to queue at Reception.

You can use any of the 3 Kiosks to check-in upon your arrival and after having entered your details you will see a message confirming your appointment time and the Clinician you are booked to see; your name will then be displayed on the TV screens when the Clinician calls for you along with the room number where you need to go.

Unfortunately, this service is not yet available at our Glinton surgery where you will be required to book-in at Reception for all appointments.
