Imperial College London is working with Public Health England to understand some of the challenges faced by women in London to attending breast cancer screening. The number of women who choose to take up breast screening has been falling, and since the COVID-19 pandemic this is only getting worse, with a backlog of 1 million missed appointments. For this we are looking to understand the perspectives of women aged between 47 and 73 in London. We are especially interested in the experiences of women from ethnic minorities, those with multiple medical problems or who have decided not to attend previously.
Women and Girls Network (WGN) is a specialist organisation leading in developing and delivering innovative and effective services for women and girls who have experienced all forms of gender-based violence. We seek practitioners for our outstanding therapeutic services across London, who will thrive in a multi-cultural feminist environment.

As a Master of Public Health student at Imperial College London I am currently undertaking a research project focused on the NHS health checks. The title of the project is “From Health Checks to Health Change: Engaging the Community on Health literacy and Self-care”. My aim is to explore with members of Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea what opportunities there are to increase the public's engagement with the NHS health checks and create an environment for sustained behavioural change to reduce cardiovascular risk. I will be using semi-structured interviews and focus groups over Zoom or Microsoft Teams to investigate this aim.
