The mobile breast screening unit is currently in Wentworth car park, Hexham.

The service offers regular breast screening every three years for women between the ages of 50 and 70.

Those eligible will shortly receive a letter from the screening service advising you how to arrange your appointment, you may have already received your invite.

We strongly advise you to make your appointment – early detection saves lives.

Please ring 0191 2820202 to arrange your appointment.

The service is accessible for those with mobility issues and the service also offers pre-visit visits for people who have a learning disability or who have anxiety.

If you have any concerns or require support to book your appointment please telephone the surgery and ask for support from a member of our reception team or our Cancer Champion, Heather Edwards.
