In 2002, I started work as Project Manager on the Sloane Project, an audit of screen-detected non-invasive carcinoma – including Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) and Lobular Carcinoma In Situ (LCIS) – and atypical hyperplasia of the breast.
NHS Breast Screening Programme
In 1988, the UK implemented the first national breast screening programme following evidence published in the Forrest Report.
Public Health England doesn’t directly train people how to carry out screening in the NHS. We’d love to visit you all but sadly don’t have the resources to do this.
Some of us in Public Health England (PHE), myself included, have worked in screening a long time.
The NHS Breast Screening Programme screens around 1.2 million women in England each year.
The NHS Breast Screening Programme relies on high quality assessments being carried out when potential abnormalities are found during screening.
The NHS Breast Screening Programme has published a national radiographic workforce report summarising the findings of its survey into the current state of the radiographic workforce.

The NHS Breast Screening Programme has a history of helping skilful and ambitious radiographers progress in their careers.
The NHS Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP) is perhaps a victim of its own success.
