The Sloane Project
The Sloane Project is a UK wide prospective audit of screen detected
non-invasive and atypical hyperplasias of the breast. All UK NHS
Breast Screening Units are invited to participate.
It is a multi-disciplinary project involving radiologists,
pathologists, surgeons and oncologists. The data for the project are
being collected by way of specifically designed data collection
forms for each professional group, which will provide full and
detailed information about the patients' journey from diagnosis to
treatment. It is being administered through the West Midlands Cancer
Screening QA Reference Centre, which is operated by
Public Health England.
The Sloane Project is named after the late Professor John Sloane, a
prominent pathologist who worked at the Royal Liverpool Infirmary,
and had a great interest in the pathology of Ductal Carcinoma in
The NHS Breast Screening Programme (NHSBSP) is
currently providing funding for the project (as it has
done on various occasions since the inception of the
project in April 2003). Pfizer
Pharmaceuticals (through an unrestricted educational
grant) and Breast Cancer Research Trust (via a two
year project grant) have also previously provided
funding for the audit, for which we are thankful.
We are also grateful for the private donations that we
have received through the course of the project, which
have helped us to continue with this important audit.
