Welcome to the BreastCheck web site

BreastCheck is a Government-funded programme providing breast screening to eligible women, on an area by area basis, every two years. BreastCheck is extending and in time, the programme will be available to all women aged 50 to 69.

The aim of BreastCheck is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by finding and treating the disease at an early stage.

Please click here for a list of the counties where BreastCheck is currently screening.

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 continually encourages all women to check they are on the BreastCheck register and details are correct.

The BreastCheck Access Officer can arrange extra help for people with disabilities (click for more information).

Breast screening is for women without symptoms and we urge any woman who has any concerns to visit her family doctor/GP immediately even if she has had a recent mammogram. We also encourage all women to remain breast aware between or after screenings and to check for any symptoms or changes in their breasts.
