Breast Screening Service (NHS)

Screening is the process of identifying people who appear healthy but may be at increased risk of a disease or condition.

The NHS breast screening programme (BSP) is an NHS population screening programme.

Screening is different to diagnosis and there will always be some false positive and false negative results.

The NHS BSP offers screening to all women aged 50 to 70.
