Advice and information for GP practices -Breast Screening

We have been asked to liaise with primary care colleagues working in 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


This site has been created on behalf of Hampshire and Isle of Wight general practice. It aims to provide a single place to access all the COVID-19 information and guidance needed to ensure safe, effective care for patients whilst ensuring the safety and wellbeing of staff and the resilience of practices.
