Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Mammography Screening

Fourth Edition (2015)
ISBN 978-1-907487-19-4
Published by The National Screening Service

This document outlines the requirements of quality assurance for BreastCheck - The National Breast Screening Programme with detailed guidance for the medical, diagnostic and technical aspects of screening itself. It is a comprehensive document that sets the standard guidelines which allow for a centralised system of assessment. It sets out the objectives, policies and organisational procedures, which ensure that quality requirements are achieved. The Quality Guidelines are therefore a full documentation of the quality system.

It is a dynamic document. Additions and amendments will be issued periodically, following approval. Updates will be issued to all holders of the Guidelines.
The Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Mammography Screening will be reviewed approximately every five years.
