Some relatives of women who have died have contacted Public Health England and they have been offered advice and support. A clinical assessment of the women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and did not receive a final invitation for screening between 2009 and 2018 has commenced and for the women who have died, the next of kin will be contacted and offered the chance to have the outcome of the assessment explained.
