BreastCheck achieves full certification as a European Reference Centre for Breast Screening

BreastCheck has been accredited three times by international experts. The most recent accreditation was in February 2018, when BreastCheck achieved the highest level of accreditation from the European Reference Organisation for Quality Assured Breast Screening and Diagnostic Services (EUREF) as a European Reference Centre for Breast Screening.

EUREF is a pan-European organisation, operated on a non-profit basis, that develops evidence based guidelines for best clinical practice and quality assurance of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services in cooperation with the European Commission.

EUREF awards voluntary certification of high quality breast cancer screening services. Certification involves rigorous analysis of breast screening performance data and includes external audit of all clinical specialities, through site visits by a team of expert clinical auditors.

Achievement of certification recognises and guarantees quality conformance of the clinical and technical aspects of breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment as well as in respect of data collection and epidemiology.

Following BreastCheck’s certification visit, EUREF stated they observed a commendable standard of professional activity, with excellent and well trained multi-disciplinary clinical teams operating to international standards and with all professional staff showing good team dynamics.
