Breast Screening Information session – 6th March 2013

Breast Screen Programme screens around 1.6 million women every year and saves an estimated 1400 lives a year in England.

In Saltley the take up for Breast Screening is mere 40%, whereas just up the road in Hodge Hill, this figure goes up to 50%. There is alot of work that needs to be done to ensure that we increase awareness of a cancer that has the highest survival rate IF diagnosed early enough.

GOAL_Saltley as part of the DOSTI group organised an informal session, delivered by a Community Nurse based at Heartland Hospital.

The session was well received with over 25 women attending and actively participating in the discussions.
