NHS Breast Cancer Screening Scandal - What we know.
Yesterday afternoon, Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt announced to parliament that for almost a decade, the NHS has been failing to invite women aged between 68 - 71 for breast cancer screening.
It is thought as many as 450,000 women aged between 70 - 79 could have been affected.
An independent review has been launched to determine why this has happened, why the error was able to go undetected for 9 years and how it can be prevented from happening again.
