If you were previously shielding and have been invited for screening, please call the number on your invitation letter. We can discuss what we are doing to keep you safe, and the options that you have. You might want to discuss your screening appointment with the health professional who usually provides your care. This might be a specialist nurse or doctor.
If you have been advised to self isolate due to being in contact with a person with Coronavirus then you must stay at home and not attend for screening. Please contact us to reschedule your appointment.
Please come to your appointment on your own unless advised otherwise. If you need support, an interpreter or have a carer please contact us before your appointment date to discuss this.
You can use public transport to travel to your appointment. For the most recent guidance on how to travel safely, go to Traveline Cymru’s website. If you need to change the time of your appointment, or postpone your appointment please let us know.
