Breast screening locations

Breast screening register


BreastCheck is reviewing the operation of its screening programme due to the evolving situation with COVID-19.

Breast screening is currently postponed and we will be in touch when screening is set to resume. Our commitment to you, our service users, and to your safety will continue to be our principal concern at this time.

Freephone information line: 1800 45 45 55

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 21 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.
