HEALTH bosses have re-opened a breast screening service which has been closed for the past two day due to the weather.

The Chelmsford and Colchester NHS Breast Screening Service cancelled screening on Wednesday and Thursday at its mobile unit at The Fryatt Hospital in Dovercourt.

However, the service is running normally today until 2.30pm.

A spokesman said: “Women with appointments for today but after that time can either turn up before 2.30pm and they will be fitted in or phone 01206 744749 to rearrange their appointment.”
