Mam­mo­gram help and ad­vice

Uxbridge Gazette - - Your Say -

YOU may have seen news sto­ries about a prob­lem with breast screen­ing in­vi­ta­tions in Eng­land since 2009 that has af­fected many thou­sands of women who would be aged be­tween 69 and 79 to­day.

We’ve cre­ated a ded­i­cated page on our web­site www.breast­cancer­care.org.uk where:

■ You can watch our minute­long video with Breast Can­cer Care clin­i­cal di­rec­tor Dr Emma Pen­nery.

■ Peo­ple who are af­fected (or are wor­ried they may be) can read more in the blog.

■ Our free Helpline is there Mon­day to Satur­day on 0808 800 6000 to sup­port peo­ple through this and any other breast can­cer con­cerns they may have.

Our Ask Our Nurses email ser­vice can pro­vide ex­pert sup­port in writ­ing.

I know this is a deeply wor­ry­ing time for many peo­ple and prom­ise you that we will do ev­ery­thing we can to sup­port those af­fected through it. Samia al Qadhi Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Breast Can­cer Care
