Breast screening error Posted on 3 May 2018

Breast Screening Error

Some of you may have seen in the news that around 450,000 women in England failed to get invitations for breast screening because of a national computer error.

The NHS Choices website states: 'Most women can be reassured that they will have received their final invitation but there are some women, now aged 70 to 79, who have missed an invitation due to a problem that dates back to 2009'

Unfortunately, GP surgeries are unable to tell which of our patients are affected.

What to do if you think you are affected

  1. Call the breast screening helpline number 0800 169 2692
  2. Go the NHS Choices website for more information
