On Monday, 2 April, 2018, a new supplier, APS Group, will take over the printing, storage and distribution of these leaflets. To prepare for this change, there will be 2 weeks of ‘down time’ – from Monday 19 March to Sunday, 1 April, 2018 – when local screening providers will not be able to order leaflets from our current national printing supplier, Harlow Printing Ltd.
Today we’ve published an updated version of our easy guide to breast screening. This leaflet aims to ensure that our information about breast screening is equally accessible to women who have a learning disability or struggle with written English.
