Routine breast screening for women to resume

Tue, 14 Feb 2023

Routine breast screening for women aged 50 to 70 will resume at the end of the month.

Health Minister Lawrie confirmed screenings would begin again in March, with extra clinics planned.

It was temporarily suspended by Manx Care on 1 February to allow for changes in where the tests are analysed.

Manx Care screen around 150 women per week, however plans are being put in place to catch up with the programme by the end of March through provision of additional clinics within the Manx Breast Unit.
