The Breast Screening Programme


All eligible women age 50 – 70 registered with this practice will shortly be invited for breast screening (mammogram). You will receive your appointment letter through the post inviting you to a mobile unit situated in the grounds of, Tesco Car Park, Silverburn.


If the appointment is unsuitable, please call the centre to rearrange it.



Women 71 and over can request an appointment by contacting the Breast Screening Centre:


0141 800 8800 or Text phone 0141 800 8858



Breast screening every 3 years is the best way to detect breast cancer early when treatment is most likely to be effective.
