Humberside Breast Screening to restart after Covid-19 paused service

Our breast cancer screening service is starting next month after we had to put the service on hold to deal with Covid-19.

We’ll be starting routine mammograms from August 3 and priority will be given to women whose appointments had to be cancelled during the lockdown and suspension of all non-urgent health services.

Our screening sites are at Castle Hill Hospital, Morrison’s in Holderness Road,  East Hull, Freshney Green GP Practice in Grimsby. We’ve also got limited availability at the Pink Rose Suite at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.

A spokeswoman for Humberside Breast Screening Team said: “We’re so sorry we had to cancel appointments but we really appreciate the good will and understanding women have shown us while we’ve been dealing with the virus.

“We’ve worked really hard to get the service up and running again and we’ll be contacting women to rearrange their appointments over the coming weeks.

“Please be assured that if you’re coming for treatment, we’ve got all the proper safety measures and social distancing in place to keep you safe. You’ll need to wear a mask and our staff will be wearing the appropriate PPE.

“Thank you so much for your understanding.”
