Lead Breast Screening Radiography and work in one of the largest expanding Breast Screening Services Nationally.

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust hosts two London Breast Screening Services that form part of the National Health Service Breast Screening Programme. The North London Breast Screening Service (NLBSS) based at Edgware Community Hospital and the Central and East London Breast Screening Service (CELBSS) based at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Site, Barbican.

As such the combined services have an eligible population of over 370,000 and provide breast screening and assessment services for women across Barnet, Brent, Enfield, Haringey, Harrow and the southern half of West Hertfordshire in relation to NLBSS. Camden, Islington, City & Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest in relation to CELBSS. The eligible population are invited for screening on a rotating basis across a three year period.

The screening is currently provided at a combination of mobile and static screening units, all central London units are static and the North London service is a combination of both. Assessment services are currently provided at the Edgware and St. Bartholomew sites.

This is a progressive and expanding service that is friendly, supportive and offers a high quality of service to its clients and patients. The Royal Free is a flagship host Trust offering the most modern technology available both in breast screening and assessment. NLBSS and CELBSS work closely with over 15 symptomatic breast care providers who we refer patients to for onwards care.

The contract for CELBSS commenced under the Royal Free Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in April 2018. This increased the eligible population and planned activity levels for the combined services by around 50% on previous year’s activity.
