An online public meeting is to be held on Friday 24 June to discuss the proposed temporary change to the mobile breast screening unit visiting Market Drayton and Bridgnorth.

The proposed change aims to help the service catch up on screening appointments following the pandemic and allows the Unit to have all the equipment upgraded in Bristol to provide a state of the art service.  This will take 8-12 weeks and the upgraded Unit will then resume its three year cycle of community locations, starting at Newport in January 2023.  .

Women invited for breast screening from the Market Drayton and Bridgnorth areas will be able to go along to either Royal Shrewsbury Hospital or Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and opening hours have been extended to 7.30 in the evening and will now also be available at weekends at times which women can book as convenient for them.

Any feedback on the proposal is welcomed and people are invited to attend the meeting via Microsoft Teams at 6pm on Friday 24 June. You can book your place via the Eventbrite link.
