NHS Breast Screening Programme

Breast screening performance report shows we are detecting cancers early but uptake is falling

NHS Digital has published its latest annual report of breast cancer screening performance in England, covering the year 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017. During those 12 months, we invited just under 3 million women for screening and screened 2.2 million, an increase of 1.3% on the previous year.

In our quest to provide free, high quality, easy to access training for those informing women about breast screening, we often collaborate with other organisations. This makes sure we can get the right information to as many of you as possible and that you can evidence your learning in line with your professional continuing professional development (CPD).
