When we screen

Screening is organised according to your GP practice. Once every three years your GP practice will be contacted and all women eligible for screening will be invited.

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.

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 contact us or complete
the appointment request form
so we can arrange a more convenient appointment for you.

Not every woman will receive an appointment as soon as she is 50. You will receive your first appointment before your 53rd birthday and therefore there is no need to contact us for an appointment.

   

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.
