Cheadle Medical Practice Breast Screening Campaign
CMP has a newly appointment non-clinical Cancer champion, Natalie. Natalie is specifically trying to target our ‘non-responders/non-attenders’. Her efforts so far have already increased awareness in the practice for both staff and patients!

About one in eight women in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. There's a good chance of recovery if it's detected in its early stages.
Breast screening aims to find breast cancers early. It uses an X-ray test called a mammogram that can spot cancers when they are too small to see or feel.
As the likelihood of getting breast cancer increases with age, all women who are aged 50-70 and registered with a GP are automatically invited for breast cancer screening every three years.
In the meantime, if you are worried about breast cancer symptoms such as a lump or area of thickened tissue in a breast, don't wait to be offered screening – see your GP.
