GP Information


Wirral and Chester Breast Screening Programme will resume breast screening activities on Monday 10th August 2020.

We would like to confirm that at all times we are working very hard to ensure the highest levels of safety for our clients and staff. Therefore the Breast Screening Programme team will be adhering to all necessary Covid 19 safety and social distancing measures. Unfortunately we anticipate that adherence to such measures will slow the time taken to complete each appointment. We apologise for this inconvenience but do ask for clients’ patience and understanding during these exceptional times.

As breast screening resumes, clients who have had their appointment delayed during the pandemic will begin to receive invitations for breast screening.

As the programme recovers further clients will be sent letters inviting them to contact the Breast Screening Service to organise a convenient time for their screening mammogram appointment. During this contact please inform the operator of any mobility difficulties and the presence of any breast implants you may have.

In the meantime if you have any breast symptoms that you are concerned about please contact your GP who will refer you to a breast clinic if necessary. These services are still in place at present.
