The number of women aged 40 years and over who were screened for breast cancer in the reporting time period. As women are invited to on a biennial basis, all comparisons of this data should be made in reference to the equivalent time period 24-months prior.  As this is an activity measure for the service, reporting only partial activity would serve no purpose.
