Breast screening centres in Scotland

There are 6 breast screening centres in Scotland.

You’ll have your screening test at one of these centres or at a mobile screening unit.

You’ll be offered an appointment at your local test centre if you:

  • are female
  • are between the ages of 50 and 70
  • haven’t had breast screening in the last 3 years

Screening is also offered to:

  • non-binary people who were assigned female at birth (AFAB), and haven’t had breast removal surgery
  • trans women who are taking hormones
  • trans men who haven’t had breast removal surgery

GP practices only take part in the screening programme every 3 years, so you might not get your first screening invitation until you’re 53.
