Parliamentary Debates and Questions

S5W-20005: Alex Cole-Hamilton (Edinburgh Western)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 16 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on including a self-assessment questionnaire regarding incontinence when issuing invites to attend a mammogram.

 

Answered by: Joe FitzPatrick 23 November 2018

The Scottish Government would not support the inclusion of self-assessment questionnaires into the invitation issued by NHS Scotland’s Breast Screening programme. The programme has tailored invitations, offering key information to support individuals in making an informed decision about participating in screening. The inclusion of additional, non-related requests, could detract and deter invitee’s from participating in screening.
