    Summary

    A recently written report by Ann Keen, Parliamentary Under-Secretary for health (NHS BSP Annual Review 2007) claims that all of the promises made in the National Health Service Cancer Plan (DH 2000) to improve breast cancer detection through the NHS Breast Screening Programme have been delivered. Ann acknowledged "that whilst this is clearly a testament to all the hard work of those delivering such a valuable service we must remain committed to ensuring continued improvements to breast screening services and underlining our reputation as a world leader". But what has this continued success already cost the members of the Society of Radiographers in terms of their health, safety and welfare whilst they continue to work under pressure to achieve these targets? This publication has been designed to raise awareness of issues that may contribute to work-related MSDs in mammographers, and offers advice to minimise the potential risks affecting SoR members.
