The 2000/2001 BASO audit of screen detected breast cancers was undertaken to examine NHS Breast Screening Programme surgical activity in the period 1st April 2000 to 31st March 2001. The audit was designed to assess surgical performance by comparison of data with as many as possible of the surgical Quality Assurance standards recommended by the UK NHS Breast Screening Programme.

The audit covered the main topic areas:

  • the number and invasive status of screen detected breast cancers
  • pre-operative diagnosis and use of open biopsy
  • surgical caseload
  • treatment and size of all cancers
  • the patient journey
  • survival study of cases detected by screening in 1992 - 1996
