Overview

Healthwatch West Sussex would like to understand the reasons’ women do not take up the Breast Cancer Screening invitations. Your feedback will help to influence a positive change.

Please click on the link to the Breast Cancer Screening Survey (opens in new tab) to share your feedback.

The survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete.


Background information

Breast cancer is the UK’s fifth biggest cancer killer. However, early diagnosis can save lives. Breast screening data shows that only three quarters of women in West Sussex take up the offer of screening who can.

Currently, women are automatically invited for their first breast screening between the ages of 50 and 53. Thereafter they are invited every 3 years until the age of 71 years. After 71 years women can request breast screening.

Breast screening uses a breast x-ray, called a mammogram, to look for cancer that may be too small to see or feel.

The sooner breast cancer is diagnosed; the more effective treatment is likely to be. Screening can pick up breast cancer before there are any signs or symptoms.

We are trying to learn what stops people attending Breast Cancer Screening.
