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 today be aged between 69 and 79.

We’ve created a dedicated page on our website where:

l you can watch our minute-long video with Breast Cancer Care clinical director Dr Emma Pennery.

l 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.
