"National breast screening attendance"
About: Royal Bolton Hospital Royal Bolton Hospital Bolton BL4 0JR
I am 48 and invited to take part in the national breast screening programme for women 47-49. I wasn't looking forward to it but the radiographer made me feel at ease and was very reassuring. I expected the procedure to be more painful and although it wasn't pleasant it was much better than I expected. In the room there were two screens which displayed a sunset and sea waves along a beach. It certainly took my mind off the experience. I'm glad I attended and now will wait for a couple of weeks for the screening results.
