Abstract: The aim of the report is to factually describe the implementation status of each requirement across Europe based on the results of the survey. No appraisal regarding the level or quality of care provided in each country is implied. The obtained results will also be used to inform the development and implementation of the voluntary European Quality Assurance scheme for Breast Cancer Services (the European QA scheme), one of the main pillars of the ECIBC. In order to capture the healthcare provider perspective and the patient perspective, the survey was conducted in parallel with two different groups of stakeholders: 1. ECIBC National Contacts, nominated via Members States’ Health Attachés, to ensure that the EC receives official information to support the ECIBC, and 2. ED National Representatives to take into account patient advocates’ feedback on the status of breast units in their respective countries. Overall, 30 of 34 countries contacted responded to the survey.
