Breast screening: quality assurance guidelines for surgeons

NHSBSP publication No 20: these guidelines advise surgeons working in the screening programme, to audit their own work.



These guidelines can assist the regional QA teams and others outside the surgeon’s immediate colleagues, to assess the quality of breast surgery afforded by a screening unit.

They can also help trust chief executives and cancer networks to identify the resources and skills needed to care for women with screen-detected breast cancer.
