A number of our female patients will be screened for breast cancer over the coming weeks.
A mobile breast screening unit is currently in the car park of Newton Community Hospital Practice and all our female patients aged 47 to 73 have been sent an invitation to attend.
The unit, pictured, is here until December and patients have been given a date and time to attend in the appointment letter. If the appointment is not suitable, they can ring to rearrange a more suitable time. 
Please contact our reception if you have any questions. You can find out more about breast screening by following this link to NHS information: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/breast-cancer-screening/
