annual reports and updates

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. 

Thank you for all of your hard work this year

Professor Anne Mackie reflects on the hard work and achievements of everyone involved in screening during 2017.
