Breast screening

North and Mid Hampshire

COVID-19 update

The North and Mid Hants Breast Screening programme will continue to operate during the current lockdown. All of our facilities and staff work in line with Government guidance and procedures and follow strict processes around cleanliness and infection control to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

We are pleased to confirm that the breast screening programme in North and Mid Hampshire will be restarting on Wednesday 22 July 2020.  We are in the process of inviting ladies that had an appointment cancelled or were due to receive one over the past couple of months.  Please note that this may not be at the usual venue you are invited to and it will take us time to work through our backlog.

We are changing the way in which we invite ladies for screening, instead of issuing you with a timed appointment, we will write to you asking you to contact us to arrange your appointment.  You can do this via telephone, e-mail or by completing the request an appointment form
