Women aged 70 to 79 - Information for women who may have missed an invitation to a screen

Some women aged between 70 and 79 are being offered the opportunity for a breast screen. This is because some women did not receive an invitation for a final screen, as part of the routine NHS Breast Screening Programme.

The Breast Screening Programme usually invites women to have a screen once every 3 years when aged between 50 and 70 (up to their 71st birthday). This means women will usually receive their final screen sometime between their 68th and 71st birthdays.

Most women can be reassured that they will have received their final invitation but there are some women, now aged 70 to 79, who have missed an invitation due to a problem that dates back to 2009.

All affected women registered with a GP will receive a letter by the end of May with further information.

A helpline is also available: 0800 169 2692.

Care Quality Commission

Care Quality Commission Inspection

The CQC Inspection Team will be visiting the Deepings Practice on Tuesday 2nd December 2014 as part of their scheduled inspections of all Health Care organisations.

During this inspection the team will:

  • Ask patients about their experiences of receiving care;
  • Talk to the practice staff;
  • Check that we have the right systems and processes in place; and
  • Look for evidence that the services we provide are not meeting the required national standards

The CQC Inspection Team welcome feedback on your experiences and there are CQC Comment Cards available at each Reception point which your are welcome to complete and post in the secure comments box provided prior to their arrival.

Who Are the Care Quality Commision

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) are the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England.

Their job is to make sure that care provided by hospitals, dentists, ambulances, care homes and services in people’s own homes and elsewhere meets national standards of quality and safety. They also protect the interests of vulnerable people, including those whose rights are restricted under the Mental Health Act.

They put the views, experiences, health and wellbeing of people who use services at the centre of their work, and they have a range of powers that they can use to take action if people are getting poor care.
