Mammography

Women aged 50 – 70 will receive postal invitations every 3 years to attend the Mobile Breast Screening Service which is run by Somerset Breast Screening. If you wish to have a mammogram and are over the age for automatic screening, you may telephone 01823 342 425 to make your own appointment.  Women who are worried about their breasts or who wish to be instructed on self-examination should make an appointment at the Women’s Health Clinic or with a doctor of their choice, or see the practice nurse.
