Former mammographers encouraged to return to practice

10 August, 2018
Breast screening programme

Public Health England Screening is backing the recently launched HEE return to practice campaign in a bid to attract former mammographers back into the NHS Breast Screening Programme.

The HEE initiative supports returners to meet HCPC registration requirements and get back into practice in the NHS.

Support is available for returners and employers, who can access information on how to support and achieve successful clinical placements.

A poster, business cards and a case study aimed specifically at anyone thinking of coming back to work as a mammographer in the breast screening service have been created.

You can download the case study, which is the story of Philippa Martin’s successful return to practice, along with the other resources via the HEE website.

Breast screening centres are encouraged to use the resources to run local campaigns to promote mammography return to practice.

In addition, a toolkit with information for anyone thinking of returning to work in breast screening has been created.

To get a copy, contact the PHE screening helpdesk at

Further information is available on the HEE website for both returners and organisations offering a clinical placement.

The campaign is being promoted on social media with the hashtag #iamreadytoreturn
