First ever NHS ovarian cancer early detection service pilot announced

This week the UCLH cancer collaborative launched the first pilot project of an NHS ovarian cancer surveillance service for women who carry a faulty BRCAS gene and have chosen not to have their ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

This is the first time that this technology has been piloted as an NHS service and heralds a significant step towards meeting recommendation in the National Cancer Strategy to improve early diagnosis.
