Breast Screening Service
The NHS Breast Screening Service provides free breast screening every three years for all women aged 50 and over. Because the service is a rolling one which invites women from GP practices in turn, not every woman receives an invitation as soon as she is 50. But she will receive her first invitation before her 53rd birthday. Once women reach the upper age limit for routine invitations for breast screening, they are encouraged to make their own appointment.

Bowel Screening Service
Bowel cancer testing kits are being sent by post to all Bexley residents over 60 who have been identified as at possible risk. Complete with step-by-step information, and helplines for support if needed, the kits are then returned to Lewisham and King’s College Hospitals, with a two-week turnaround for results. The aim is to allow rapid action if any problem is detected.
