Consultation on Breast Screening Services in Stockport

Closed 17 Jan 2012

Opened 14 Oct 2011

Feedback updated 30 Jan 2013

We asked

How do local women feel about Stockport's breast screening service?

You said

Most women were happy with the service. However issues were identified for women with disabilities who could not access the mobile unit. It was felt that travelling to Macclesfield Hospital for screening instead was too far.

We did

We invested in new screening technology at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust (Stepping Hill Hospital) so that women can now be screened there if they cannot use the mobile unit. 82% of local women now rate the service as good or excellent.

Results updated 11 Jun 2012

183 local women took part in this survey about breast cancer screening.

The vast majority had previously used the screening service.

It was felt a wider range of appointment times could be offered.

Most respondents would be happy to travel to use a single static site in the centre of Stockport.


NHS Stockport wishes to gain the views of Stockport residents on some changes we are considering making to improve the breast screening services in Stockport

What happens next

The feedback we receive will be fed into the decision making process which will help us to decide what changes to make to improve  the breast screening services in Stockport
