Introduction. Breast cancer is the most common female cancer in developed is a substantial body of evidence that shows the earlier breast cancer is detected the greater the chance of survival,.In the EUROCARE-4 (–) study, 5-year relative survival varied between 23 European countries, ranging from % in the Czech Republic to % in Iceland, with the figure for. Screening tests are a way to identify apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition so they can be treated or monitored. Find out about the types of tests offered in Scotland and the conditions they look for.

  Relatedly, previous studies that have shown an effect of text-message reminders on CRC and breast screening uptake had informed participants at the time of initial screening . These findings show that a policy of second appointments with fixed date and time for non-attenders of breast screening is effective in improving participation. This strategy can be easily implemented by the screening sites and, if combined with simple interventions, could further increase participation and ensure an upward shift in the participation trend nationally.

About this report Community Links was commissioned by NHS Newham to increase the take up of breast screening by women, residing in the London Borough of Newham.

The approach, developed by the public health team at NHS Tower Hamlets, draws on analysis of needs and existing literature about effective interventions to promote breast screening.

OBJECTIVES: to determine breast screening uptake in older women and to ascertain from previous non-attenders whether they would accept screening if invited.

Objectives: In an attempt to improve breast cancer screening uptake and coverage, persistent non-attenders in the Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust were included in an invitation management initiative.

Methods: Persistent non-attenders were identified in routine screening lists. Phone contact was attempted or a home visit was made. Women diagnosed with breast cancer at a relatively early age (≤45 years) or with bilateral disease at any age are at elevated risk for additional breast cancer, as are their female first-degree relatives (FDRs).

1. Percentages of uptake were 74% (95% CI = 72%–75%) in urban Scotland, compared to 76% (95% CI = 75%–76%) in rural Scotland. Screening uptake was observed to be slightly higher in the rural population compared to the urban population.Breast screening uses a breast x-ray, called a mammogram, to look for breast cancers that may be too small to see or feel.
