BREAST CANCER SCANDAL IN ACCRINGTON

An enquiry has recently revealed that a Consultant Radiologist in Accrington has missed breast cancer in approximately 61 women who were wrongly given the all-clear.

The enquiry found that 92% of the doctor’s patients had not been assessed in line with national guidelines and none of those called back for reassessment had undergone an ultrasound examination . This was despite signs of abnormalities on their mammograms.
