EDM #2605
Tabled 15 July 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House recognises that every person with a family history of breast cancer under the age of 40 should have access to family history services regardless of where they live; notes that there is currently a lack of national oversight of screening for women with a family history of breast cancer; recognises that NHS England needs to provide clarity on the current governance arrangements for the provision of services for all women with a family history of breast cancer, including what obligations CCGs have for funding family history clinics; and urges the Government to introduce legislation for a statutory duty on the Secretary of State to ensure the implementation of current NICE family history guidelines.
