Breast screening services
Breast screening services in the UK are supported by NHS Digital who provide the software to manage the call and recall of women who are eligible for breast screening.
Breast screening in England
Breast Screening Select
Women in England are called and recalled for screening using Breast Screening Select (BSS), a browser-based application.
Using BSS you can flag subjects as potentially being at a higher risk from breast cancer, add episodes to a subject's screening history, or cease subjects from the system. You can also produce reports, view contact lists and customise parameters for your local breast screening office.

Breast Screening Information System
Breast Screening Information System (BSIS) is a browser-based application, available via Open Exeter (NHS network access required), that allows authorised users to:
- upload radiology and KC62 annual returns data
- produce reports for both radiology and KC62 returns
- add, view and edit film readers
- review any issues with uploaded KC62 returns data
The KC62 is a national statistical mandatory return that all breast screening units in England are required to undertake on an annual basis.
