Breast Screening Programme - Identified failure

Information Pack  (NHS England May 2018)


Dear Colleagues

All practices should have received the information pack enclosed above regarding the recently identified failure in the NHS Breast screening programme. This includes further background from NHS England and Public Health England and a sample letter that any patients who have been identified as having missed a screening invitation will receive. There is also a helpline number for patients; statistically each practice will have a small number of patients affected by this incident which has received widespread publicity

With best wishes
