Scottish Breast Screening Programme: major review

Major review of the Scottish Breast Screening Programme.


The review group chair and the review team are grateful to the Clinical Directors, Superintendent Radiographers, and Breast Screening Centre Managers from the six breast screening centres in Scotland for their participation and support in this review. This is particularly appreciated given the screening service response to Covid-19 in 2020 and ongoing, and the necessary focus on adaptation and recovery.

The review team also appreciated the support from NHS Board Screening Coordinators, colleagues within NSS who were not on the review group, and from wider colleagues in other services.
