Breast Screening

Things are a little different this year for us all with the onset of the Covid19 pandemic in March 20, but looking after your health is still important.  At present all Breast services are continuing throughout NI.

The breast screening services have implemented new risk assessed measures to help keep everyone safe:

  • Covid Questionnaire on entering unit
  • PPE worn by staff
  • Social distancing guidelines in place
  • Increased infection control measures including regular cleaning of equipment and touch point areas after every mammogram.

if you have recently bee offered a screening appointment but are concerned for any reason, please contact your local screening unit where staff are on hand to answer any questions. Even if you have missed your recent appointment and now wish to attend, this can be easily arranged by contacting the Breast Screening Unit.

See Breast Screening Unit Infection Control Measures.
