NHS Breast Screening Programme - Advice and information for GP practices


The Regional Heads of Public Health Commissioning are asking all GP practices to ensure they are aware that women are sent their initial screening invitations sometime between their 50th and before their 53rd birthday.   The screening helpdesk continue to receive queries regarding correct age of eligibility and GPs should give the appropriate messages on when screening commences.  An e-learning module on the breast screening programme produced by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) in collaboration with the NHS Breast Screening Programme is available to access for all primary care staff  https://learning.bmj.com/learning/search-result.html?moduleId=5004442.
