An important principle for BreastCheck is to offer screening services locally to women in counties and locations convenient to where they live.
To achieve this, each of our 4 screening units operates in tandem with mobile units.
There are 19 mobile screening units located around the country.
These mobile clinics usually stay at a location between 3 months to 24 months depending on the demand for screening in that area at the time.
During this time, we invite eligible women living in the area for a routine mammogram.
The majority of women participating in BreastCheck have their mammogram in one of these mobile units.
To find out if breast screening is currently being held in your local area, see the screening dates below.
