Screening resumes

COVID-19 is causing unprecedented levels of the virus within our community. Government and Public Health advice is that we greatly restrict our movements and limit the people with whom we interact, in order to supress the virus and sustain our essential services.

Your safety, and the safety of the staff who care for you, are our highest priorities at this time. Safety precautions are in place throughout the health services to protect against the spread of COVID-19, and we have put in place safety measures to reduce the risk of infection.

We will let you know of any changes to screening at this time, via the COVID-19 information sections on our websites:

Essential travel

Under current COVID-19 restrictions, people can travel for essential purposes including screening appointments. Our health services have precautions in place to help protect you and our staff against the spread of COVID-19. Please attend for screening when you receive your invitation.

If you have symptoms you should contact your GP, who will arrange appropriate follow-up care. For more information, please contact the Freephone line on 1800 45 45 55 or email info@screeningservice.ie
