Women who are aged between 50 and 70 and are registered with a GP at Moray Coast Medical Practice and Station Health Centre, RAF Lossiemouth, will receive an invitation to attend.

The letters are sent out four weeks before the appointment date.

Women aged 71 years and over are not sent an invitation, however, they can make their own appointment by contacting the Screening Centre on 01224 550570.

Mrs Sarah Philip, manager for the breast screening service, said: “The aim of the programme is to detect breast changes at an early stage when treatment has the best chance of being successful.

“We hope that women invited for the first time will take advantage of their invitation for mammography.

“For women who have been screened previously, it is important to attend to ensure that there have been no changes over the past three years.

“The risk of developing breast cancer increases as you get older, so if any woman missed or failed to attend their previous invitation, it is still important to come along for screening this time.”
