Well woman free NHS breast screening is happening locally. You are eligible if you are registered at a GP and are aged between 50 & 70. When your own surgery is due, you will get invited. Watch out for your letter before making an apt.

IMPORTANT: If you have concerns about your breasts or pecs, please contact your GP, do not waiting for a well woman check up


How do you know what is normal for your breasts or pecs?

www.knowyourlemons.com You can check out their free app and watch Mona Lisa show you how to check. No need to download the app, watch online.

Heard of www.Coppafeel.org ? Register on their website and get a free monthly reminder to ..copp-a-feel! You can also send for some of their free info leaflets or shower stickers to share with family and friends.

Still not sure? When you are in the shower or bath…do you put soap on your hands? Then give your body a rub? That is an easy way to get you started with checking yourself once every month or two.




That is a few ways to be #breastaware until you reach the age when breast screening starts (about 50). Just for women as the most, but not all, women are 50yrs and over when they are diagnosed with breast cancer. Biggest risk factors are having female hormones and getting older. Family history usually plays a part if you have a close relative and she was under 50 when diagnosed.

From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

  • the NHS website (from 17 May 2021)

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.

If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
