Halifax North & East Blog

Women in Calderdale are being urged to take up their breast screening appointments when two of the hospital services’ mobile units set up base in the area over the next few months.

Health specialists from the Pennine Breast Screening programme have taken up residence at the B&Q store, Shroggs Lane, Halifax, while a further mobile unit will be located at Todmorden Health Centre from the start of November.

Leah Richardson, Pennine Breast Screening’s principal superintendent radiographer in breast imaging, said: “We invite women aged between 50-to-70-years-old for breast screening every three years and are pleased that B&Q and our other partners in Calderdale continue to support the programme by providing a location for our mobile units. It means we can bring our innovative services to where the women of Calderdale have told us is best for them.”
