    Obviously the chatter would have to be incorporated in to the art of positioning!!😁

    Julie, yes I’ve altered my practice as digital mammography came in; I never used to bother for the CC views (top-to-bottom pics, y’all) but I do now for the whole lot. However, if I’m chatting to someone and they’re chatting back, I find my incredibly English-let’s-be-polite culture comes to the fore and i’m waiting for them to finish before I interrupt and ask them to hold their breath.

    Terribly awkward when their breast is under compression, mind.

    Oh noo!! It is hard enough as it is. How about, leaflets and posters on display? Be nice to have a coffee and chat area.. ?! I feel is hard sometimes to give some ladies the extra time they need.
    I agree is an opportunity Shaheeda that maybe we don’t fully utilise 🤔

    What sort of messages? I would think some clients could take things very personally so could be tricky!

    Can mammographers predict which clients would prefer a chat or non chat?

    It’s what AHPs are supposed to be doing now, Geraldine. Making every Contact Count

    Health message can be totally breast related..I can ask..Do you know how to check for what is normal for you? and give a leaflet. We have leaflets about cervical and bowel screening as well. Maybe we could share public health messages next time here?

    Public health messages could include info about smears, i have been asked many times regarding frequency of cervical smears and who to contact? Any of the other breastscreening staff bbeen asked?

    I think these sorts of Public Health messages are much more appropriate than raising issues about weight and smoking which is what has been suggested

    Gosh ,yes, Public Health messages too. Good call there, Shaheeda, I recall being asked that question myself! Leaflets to hand out would be helpful, and I really should know my onions when it comes to other forms of screening.
