Screening services are planning to restart sending appointment letters to women between the ages 50-70 for Breast Screening at the specialised digital mobile units currently situated at Lurgan Hospital and Dromalane House, Newry.

To help make use of all available appointments, women are advised to contact the Breast Screening Unit, Tel: 028 3756 0820 to confirm if they are able to attend, when they receive their letter.

As a next step and agreed regionally by the Public Health Agency, the Trust will wait until the current Breast Screening waiting lists have reduced until women over 70 years will be offered the option to self refer for Breast Screening services.
