When you get your appointment will depend on which GP practice you are registered with, which may mean that you are invited at different times to other women your age. You should get your first invitation before your 53rd birthday. If you haven't, please contact us on 0141 800 8800. Please also let us know if you have moved house and are concerned that you may have missed an invitation for screening.
Being breast aware is about getting to know your own body so that you can spot any changes to your breasts early on. Remember you can develop breast cancer at any time. This includes the time in between breast screening appointments.
It is your choice whether to have breast screening or not, for more information about breast screening in Scotland visit: www.nhsinform.co.uk/screening/breast
