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.

Many of the things that you might think you need to see a doctor about can often be dealt with by our nurses, all whom have been trained to deal with medical problems; for some things the nurse is more experienced at dealing with the problem than a doctor.

Routine blood pressure checks, HRT and contraceptive prescribing, minor illness management and management of diabetes, coronary heart disease, asthma and COPD and many other conditions come within their expertise.
