The Shropshire Breast Screening Service is part of the National Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP) and invites around 25,000 local women for screening each year.
In Shropshire we aim to provide and promote an efficient and effective, high quality breast screening service to all eligible women within a caring environment.
Currently, well women aged between 50 and 70, who are registered with a GP Practice in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, are screened every three years. The aim of breast screening is to detect breast cancer at an earlier stage, often before the woman is aware of any problem. Early detection may mean simpler and more successful treatment.
