Mobile screening units

As each county only has one static breast screening unit, the majority of screening is performed on mobile units which travel around the county to different sites.In Dorset we have approximately 20 sites throughout the county, covering an area from Lyme Regis in the west, to Bournemouth in the east and north as far as Gillingham. As each doctor's practice is screened, the mobile unit will be situated nearby, so that ladies will not have far to travel.

Female radiographers from the static unit work on mobiles units in rotation. All mobile units have fairly steep steps to go into them. If these would be a problem for you, it is advisable to ring the static unit and make an appointment there, where the entrance is level.

Generally the whole process should not take more than 20 minutes, most of this time being spent filling in paperwork. You will be given information as to the location of the mobile unit to which you have been invited.
