BreastCheck is a Government-funded programme that provides free mammograms to eligible women on an area by area basis every two years. BreastCheck is being extended and by the end of 2021, all eligible women aged 50 to 69 will be invited for routine screening. The aim of BreastCheck is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by finding and treating the disease at an early stage. BreastCheck encourages all women who receive an invitation to attend their appointment. Women who have any concerns regarding their appointment can contact BreastCheck on Freephone 1800 45 45 55. BreastCheck encourages women to check they are on the BreastCheck register and their details are correct.
