The NHS Scotland mobile breast screening unit is arriving at Canisbay next Monday [July 8, 2019].

Women between the ages of 50 and 70 who are registered with Canisbay and Castletown Surgery will be invited to attend breast screening on the mobile breast screening unit.

This will be located in the Surgery car park in Canisbay from 8th July 8 until July 19.

The mobile screening unit is equipped with state of the art breast x-ray [mammography] equipment and staffed by an experienced all-female team.

NHS Highland would like to encourage all women who are invited to breast screening to consider taking up the opportunity.

The combination of being “breast aware” and knowing what is normal for you, reporting any changes to your GP as soon as possible and attending regular breast screening appointments is the best way of finding breast cancer at an early stage and increasing your chances of surviving it.
