Breast screening is performed on women from 50-70 years of age, every three years and patients will automatically be invited by the West Sussex Breast Screening Service to attend at the local screening unit. The results are sent directly to the patient and to the Practice. Mammograms are available to women over 70 on request. Patients can also self refer to breast screening units, however if they have any worrying symptoms, to speak to a GP in the first instance.
