Sloane has a new home

Bridget Hilton (top) and Karen Clements (below) have both been involved in the project to move the Sloane website

Moving a website is never easy - but the hope is that all the hard work is worth it!

Today we're happy to launch the new home of the Sloane Project, which is an audit to better understand a number of early developing conditions which can lead to breast cancer if untreated.

It houses the forms breast screening units use to send us information, guidance to help with the forms, plus more general information about what the project is all about and the types of disease we're interested in.

The old Sloane Project website was one of the last screening sites to be moved onto GOV.UK so it's good to catch up and benefit from new, improved web content (we hope you agree!).

Those of you who need a little time to get used to things shouldn't panic. The old website will continue to run until the end of October 2018, at which point you'll be redirected to the new pages automatically.

We really need breast screening units to continue to support us and hope the improved new website will help make things even easier. If you’d like to find out about the work we do you can read more about the project in a previous blog we wrote.

Sloane overview

The Sloane Project has a main page which should be the first port of call. This page includes information about:

All important forms

From the main page there are links to 2 further pages - one for the main form and one for the follow up form.

Main form page

There are 2 attachments on the page housing the main form. These are:

The guidance will help you answer the questions on the form and includes images to help you identify what we're looking for.

Follow up form page

The follow up form is to send in data on women who are already known to the Sloane Project when they have been diagnosed with a further breast cancer, regional or distant event. We designed it as a writable PDF after getting feedback from our users.

The way the new website looks will be familiar to many of you

Closing the old website

We will close the old website at the end of October. This will give us time to ensure the new GOV.UK pages are working properly and to capture any feedback.

When we close the old website, the old link (www.sloaneproject.org.uk) will send you automatically to the new Sloane Project pages on GOV.UK.

The old Sloane website will be saved on the national archive, so you will still be able to refer back to it if you need to.
