The Beds and Herts Breast Screening Service is part of the National Breast Screening Programme and provides a free breast screening service for well women aged between 50 and 70, serving residents in all of Bedfordshire and most of Hertfordshire.
On average we screen across the four vans and in the centre 220 women a day, including ultrasound and biopsies. Breast screening aims to find breast cancer at an early stage, to reduce mortality and promote earlier treatment of breast cancers.
We would like to refurbish the waiting areas in the mobile screening units and centre as well as the clinical rooms and counselling room to improve the experience and ensure all women are seen within a comfortable and caring environment.
To support our breast screening service you can donate here or in our screening centres.
