To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on what work it has undertaken to support Public Health England in contacting women who had missed their final invitation from the breast screening programme in England.


Answered by Jeane Freeman (13/09/2018):

In response to the breast screening incident in England, the Scottish Government established a Clinical Taskforce which worked closely with Public Health England (PHE) to ensure that all women affected by the incident, and who are now resident in Scotland, have been contacted appropriately. The Scottish Government can confirm that all women affected by the incident in England have now been contacted and offered a breast screening.

In the course of its work, the Scottish Clinical Taskforce has undertaken due diligence checks on the Scottish Breast Screening Programme. This work has identified a separate and unrelated issue within the Scottish Programme. 1,761 women in Scotland, out of the approximately 700,000 women who are eligible for screening, have not received their final invitation for breast screening over the last three years. All of these women will now be aged 71 or older.

All of the women who have been affected have been identified and are being written to this week with an invitation for breast screening, and an apology that they did not receive their invitation to screening when they should have.
