UK reviewing breast screening programme
This article was originally published in Clinica
Two UK pilot studies are being set up to evaluate the effectiveness of extending the national breast screening programme to women aged 65 to 69. Junior Health Minister Baroness Cumberlege says further research was recommended by the independent advisory committee on breast cancer screening before women up to 69 were included in the scheme. The current age limits are 50-64. Preparatory work is under way for the pilot studies in South Thames and the Northern & Yorkshire regions.
