Very high-risk breast screening

NHS England is currently contacting a group of 1,487 women at very high risk of breast cancer following chest radiotherapy for Hodgkin lymphoma, after NHSE was alerted that some of these women treated when aged between 10 to 35 years during 1962 to 2003 may not have been invited for this annual testing.  NHSE has sent a letter apologising for what has happened and NHS breast screening services will follow up by offering appointments.

Anyone who thinks they might be in this group can get further information and support from a dedicated helpline: 0345 8778962​

More information can be found on the NHS website
