Improving breast cancer screening services in London, Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford
NHS England is asking for your help to shape how breast cancer screening services are delivered across London, Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Watford.
We want to understand your experiences of using breast cancer screening services, and what you think we need to do to improve these services in the future.
Anyone registered with a GP as female will be invited for NHS breast screening every 3 years between the ages of 50 and 70. When going for a breast cancer screening, the screening service will use a test called a mammogram, which takes x-rays of the breasts. This screening can help to detect breast cancers early, when they may be too small to feel or see.
The current evidence suggests that breast screening saves the lives of about 1,300 people every year in the UK. That’s why it’s so important individuals feel comfortable attending breast cancer screening, and that we do all we can to make sure that these services are delivered in a way that makes it as easy as possible for people to attend.
