The Government must make sure that a computer failure which left more than 12,000 North East women unchecked for signs of breast cancer will never happen again.


The error meant women were not called for a final mammogram before they turned 70.

In my constituency of Sunderland Central there were 135 women affected -; which is shocking.

It’s not right that women have missed out on this essential service due to a computer error and I’m really concerned women may have died of breast cancer unnecessarily as a result.

The Government needs to urgently review this error and ensure that those who have missed screenings are invited for a scan.
