Invitations will be received by post and we would encourage all women who receive one to attend. Breast screening helps to spot cancer sooner when it is too small to see or feel. Early diagnosis could help to save you life. For more information visit www.breast-screening.surrey.nhs.uk.

Organ Donation in England has moved to an 'opt out' system:
What has changed?
Organ donation in England has moved to an 'opt out' system. You may also hear it referred to as 'Max and Keira's Law'.
This means that all adults in England will be considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.
Your family will still be approached and your faith, beliefs and culture will continue to be respected.
You still have a choice about whether or not you wish to become a donor. Get the facts about organ donation to help you decide.
