Norwich Practices Health Centre is operated by Norwich Practices Ltd under a contract with NHS England to provide NHS services. Norwich Practices Ltd is owned and operated by doctors from local GP practices. The company was set up because those local GPs felt they could provide more and better services to patients if they worked together.

NHS Breast Screening Programme
A number of women aged between 70 and 79 are being offered the opportunity for a breast screen, after some women did not receive an invitation for their final screen, as part of the routine NHS Breast Screening Programme.
Most women can be reassured that they will have received their final invitation but all women under 72 years old who are affected, will receive an appointment letter from Public Health England and the NHS by the end of May 2018 informing them of their time and date.
Women aged 72-79, will receive a letter providing clear information on what to do next if they choose to have a screen and will be asked to contact the helpline who will link with their local Breast Screening Service to arrange an appointment and invitation letter.
Women, aged 70 -79, currently registered with a GP, who do not receive a letter from PHE can be assured they are not affected and do not need a catch-up screen.
However, if you are not currently registered with a GP and believe you did not receive an invitation for a screen sometime between your 68th - 71st birthdays then we advise that you get in touch with the helpline: 0800 169 2692.
