In 1988 we began screening women in a specific age group without symptoms regularly and systematically for breast cancer. Two decades and 18 million sets of mammograms later, we estimate around 1,400 lives are now saved each year as a result of breast screening.

In this year's annual review we look back at how the programme has evolved over time, and look forward to the future developments that will deliver even greater benefits to thousands of women in the years to come.
