Breast Screening

What does Frome Medical Practice offer?

Currently, all women in the UK aged between 50 and 70 are routinely invited every three years for breast screening, sometimes called a mammogram.

The Breast Screening Service is operated by Avon Breast Screening, rather than Frome Medical Practice. They arrange for all women to be screened at the mobile breast screening unit. Screening is strictly by appointment only. 

It is important to be breast aware and to regularly check your breasts for any changes, regardless of your age. See below for more information on this.

If you have any concerns about changes in your breasts that are not normal for you please contact the Practice on 01373 301301 as soon as possible.
