Breast Cancer Screening Programme
West London Breast Cancer Screening
We are part of the NHS Breast Screening Programme providing services to women registered with GPs in Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kensington, & Chelsea and Westminster. We are based at Charing Cross Hospital, but to enable women to be screened closer to home, we have five screening sites across the West of London area.
We aim to provide a high quality breast screening service, within a caring environment and offer services at a convenient location for all eligible women so that everybody can attend irrespective of age and circumstance. We invite all women aged 50-70 for screening once every 3 years. You do not have to contact us, we will invite you at the appropriate time.

Bowel Cancer Screening Programme – Bowel Cancer Screening
If you are eligible to take part in the bowel cancer screening programme you will receive an invitation for bowel scope at aged 55 years and a faecal occult blood test (FOBt) kit in the post every two years between the ages of 60 and 74 years. People between the age of 55 and 59 years can request a bowel scope test (if this has not already been done) and people over the age of 74 years can request an FOBt kit. For either it is necessary to contact the London Bowel Cancer Screening Hub at St Mark’s Hospital.
