As a pilot site for the Occupational Standards/Skill Mix project, by Christmas 2000 we had become aware that this also meant that we were expected to extend the screening programme up to the age of 70 and introduce two views on all women, before the end of March 2002. This poster takes a light-hearted pictorial view of our journey from then to 4 February 2002 and beyond.
