This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear South West Public Health Observatory,

For the Regional Breast Screening Centres that are covered by SWPHO, please provide the following information for the years 2001 to 2010 inclusive:

1. Name of each Regional Centre (example Avon Breast Screening)

2. For each centre, the number of women invited to be screened during each year.

3. For each centre, the actual number of eligible women who were screened during each year.

4. For each centre, the number of interval cancers detected during each year.

I appreciate that, by their nature, there is a time lag of months/years between date of screening and presentation with an interval cancer. However, if you have any information for each centre on the average lag between mammogram and presentation with interval cancer, that would be helpful.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs D Havercroft
