Women in England who are aged from 50 to their 71st birthday and registered with a GP are automatically invited for screening every 3 years. But the NHS is in the process of extending the programme as a trial, offering screening to some women aged 47 to 73.
From your 71st birthday we will not automatically invite you, but you can request screening every 3 years by contacting your local breast unit. Unit details are available at www.nhs.uk/breast-screening
As the risk of breast cancer does not stop at 71, please consider the importance of continuing with your breast screening.
