A Mobile Breast Screening Unit will be based in Cheadle for Six Months

The North Staffordshire Breast Screening Service will have a mobile unit based at Cheadle Hospital from April to September.

All eligible women registered with GPs from Cheadle, Endon and the surrounding areas are invited to attend their screening at the mobile unit.

The NHS Breast Screening Programme began in 1988 and invites all women aged 50 to 70 years for breast screening once every three years.

Breast Screening is currently participating in an age extension trial, which means that half the women aged between 47to 49 or 70 to 73 will also receive an invitation to attend breast screening.
