NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62)

The NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62) provides information to the NHS Breast Screening Programme from Breast Screening Units on the processes and outcomes of the call and recall system.

Overview

Introduction

The NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62)  provides information to the NHS Breast Screening Programme  from Breast Screening Units  on the processes and outcomes of the call and recall system. Screening Programmes  are supported by the UK National Screening Committee.

The information is used:

The NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62)  is analysed by  NHS Digital  and also used by the Public Health Research Unit to evaluate the effectiveness of Breast Screening.  It is also used by the Regional Breast Screening Quality Assurance Reference Centres as part of the quality assurance process, and enables on-going monitoring of their individual programmes and comparisons within their regions and with England overall.

Collection

The NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62)  requires information on women invited for Breast Screening, the outcome of the  Breast Screening  and further information on each cancer detected.  It is completed annually and submitted by the end of the October following the end of the REPORTING PERIOD  to which the data relates.

Women are included in the NHS Breast Screening Programme Central Return Data Set (KC62)  only if the test date offered or SCREENING TEST DATE  was within the review period.  All Screening Tests  taking place within the  REPORTING PERIOD are counted.  One woman may not have more than one outcome of cancer in the REPORTING PERIOD.  Women who are referred directly for a Screening Test  (rather than an invitation as part of a Screening Programme) are also included if the SCREENING TEST DATE  is within the REPORTING PERIOD.
