Women aged 50 to 74 - you can book a screening mammogram without a referral or requisition. Some clinics may need you to give your healthcare provider’s name in order to book a mammogram. This is so that the clinic knows who to send results to and who will do the follow-up, if needed.
Women aged 40 to 49 - you will need a referral or requisition from your healthcare provider for your first screening mammogram. After that, you can book future mammogram appointments by providing the name of your healthcare provider.
Women aged 75 and older - if you choose to continue screening, you will need a referral from your healthcare provider.
