The breast screening service is now inviting local women to attend for appointments at Withington Community Hospital. Women who are aged between 50 and 70 years will receive an appointment to attend for an appointment over the next few weeks. Anyone who is over the age of 70 is able to request an appointment themselves by calling 0161 291 4444 or going online to the breast screening website: http://www.breast-screening.uhsm.nhs.uk
We are hoping to raise awareness of the screening by promoting this as widely as possible and are hoping to undertake some promotional work within the area. This could include attendance at community events/group meetings especially those where a female audience would be expected to be present – disseminating materials, providing group talks or perhaps information stalls at specific events. We also have literature which can be distributed electronically and printed for displaying on notice boards etc or perhaps included in local newsletters etc.
