Abstract

Three Cancer Genetic Clinics in the UK audited the characteristics of individuals attending their clinics, their family histories of cancer, their educational levels and household income. In addition, the screening recommendations made and the accumulated load of mammography was assessed in one center. In all three centers the referral rate has increased over the last 10 years but is beginning to plateau with those seen being predominantly middle aged, married, well educated women.
