What happens to my mammograms after screening?

The NHS Breast Screening programme will keep your mammograms for at least eight years. These are saved securely.

The screening programme regularly checks records to make sure the service is as good as possible. Staff in other parts of the health service may need to see your records for this, but your records will only be shared with people who need to see them.

If you want to know the results of these regular checks, you can contact your local screening unit.
