Breast Screening

BreastCheck screening is for women without symptoms; we urge any woman who has any concerns to visit her family doctor/GP immediately even if she has had a recent mammogram. We also encourage all women to remain breast aware between or after screenings and to check for any symptoms or changes in their breasts.
BreastCheck is a Government-funded programme providing breast screening and invites women aged 50 to 64 for a free mammogram on an area-by-area basis every two years. The aim of BreastCheck is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by finding and treating the disease at an early stage.
We encourage all women who receive a BreastCheck invitation to attend their appointment. Women who have any concerns regarding their  appointment can contact BreastCheck Freephone 1800 45 45 55 or online at http://www.breastcheck.ie/

Cervical Screening (Smear Tests)

Free smears are available for those registered with CervicalCheck.
Private Smears are available for those not eligible for CervicalCheck.
Smears are normally undertaken by either the practice nurse or one of our female doctors by appointment.
CervicalCheck, the National Cervical Screening Programme, provides free smear tests to women aged 25 to 60. A smear test is a simple procedure that only takes minutes and is the most effective way to detect changes in the cells of the cervix. Cervical check has recently changed its policy to access the service. You have to ring or register online, then contact us for an appointment.
