National Breast Screening Issue

03 May 2018 17:08:45


You may be aware NHS England have advised that some women in England did not receive invitations for a final routine breast cancer screening between the ages of 68 and 71 between 2009 and 2018. All women affected will be contacted by Public Health England by the end of May with an appointment date and time to attend a relevant hospital for a breast screen.

The Breast Screening Programme usually invites women to have a screen once every three years when aged between 50 and 70 (up to their 71st birthday). This means women will usually receive their final screen sometime between their 68th and 71st birthdays. Most women can be reassured that they will have received their final invitation but there are some women, now aged between 70-79 years, who have missed an invitation as a result of a problem dating back to 2009.

Please be assured that The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust will work closely with Public Health England to make sure any women who are to have their screening with us are seen in a timely manner. Further information can be found on the NHS Choices website or you can call the national helpline on 0800 169 2692.
