Doctors to be advised not to disclose findings of past mammogram reviews
Recommendation comes from unpublished expert group report on BreastCheck screening programme
Doctors are set to be advised to not disclose the findings of existing reviews into mammograms women had before they were diagnosed with breast cancer.
The recommendation is contained in an unpublished expert group report on the BreastCheck screening programme. The reviews were carried out as part of an ongoing quality check process since the programme was established in 2000. They were also used to examine whether abnormalities may have been missed in a previous mammogram.
