Mammography and Smear Testslogo

Mammography

Women in the 50-65 age group are automatically invited for a mammogram every three years. There is good evidence that this kind of check continues to benefit women over 65, who may ask to stay in the screening programme by telephoning 02476 967200 (‘Mammography’ is breast examination by X-ray.)

Cervical Smears

These are recommended every three years for women between the ages of 25 and 50, and every 5 years up to the age of 65.
