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. We aim to provide and promote an efficient and effective, high quality breast screening service, to all eligible women within a caring environment.
The mobile screening vans are located in convenient locations making it easy and accessible to attend.
Our dedicated unit at the L&D provides a range of out-patient clinics:
- Assessment clinic for follow-up screening clients
- Symptomatic One-stop clinic
- Family history clinics
Our symptomatic service ensures that all clients are seen by a specialised breast team and all necessary investigations are carried out in one visit. All results are discussed in the breast multi-disciplinary team meeting the same week.
Family history referrals are sent to the screening service directly and an information pack is also sent to all referring GPs.
We always maintain a high standard of care and strive to ensure that national performance targets are consistently met.
Our excellent multi-disciplinary team consists of Consultants, Breast Physicians, Breast Care Nurses, Mammographers and Administrative support enabling us to provide the utmost care and respect within our service.
