Call for breast services review

15th June 2007

A Scottish hospital has recalled almost 200 women who were being treated for suspected breast cancer.

The women have been called for re-examination after it was realised they had not received the required standard of breast examination at Inverclyde Royal Hospital, in Greenock.

The hospital has been attempting to contact the women involved for new appointments and a helpline for any patient who attended the breast clinic at Inverclyde Royal Hospital has been set up. NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has ordered a full review of breast services at the hospital.
