Screening appointments

If you are between 50 and 70 years old you will receive an appointment once every three years, inviting you to have a breast screening mammogram. We invite over 155,000 women per year for screening in South West London. You do not have to contact us to make an appointment, we will ensure that you receive your invitation at the appropriate time. The screening programme also offers women over 70 a free breast screen every three years. Women over 70 will not be sent an invitation but are encouraged to call the unit to make an appointment that suits them.

If you would like to know when you are likely to be invited you can look at the screening schedule If it has been over three years since your last breast screening appointment then please call 020 37582024

We have a number of different locations where you can be screened and a range of appointment dates and times. We try to invite you to a screening clinic that is close to your GP practice, however we appreciate that this may not always suit you. Find out more about our screening locations.

When you receive your invitation letter you will see that we have already allocated you a specific screening location, appointment date and time. If you find this appointment inconvenient then please call 020 37582024 so that we can arrange a more convenient appointment for you.

   

The Rose Centre

What is a Mammography


The Rose Centre opened in 2011. This modern facility provides Breast Screening for women local to St.Georges Hospital. The centre is also a diagnostic centre for all women screened in South West London. Having been formerly based at the Duchess of Kent Unit for many years it was a welcome move to this site.
