Firstly, thanks for your support and for signing the petition - we really appreciate it! The reason we have a petition running in Wales is because our findings from our freedom of information (FoI) request showed only three out of seven Welsh Health Boards are providing mpMRI before biopsy. Out of those three, only two, Aneurin Bevan and Cwm Taf, are providing mpMRI to a high enough standard to safely rule men out of biopsy. This represents no improvement since the Boards last responded to an FOI on this in Autumn 2016.
We are working across all nations in different ways to influence for mpMRI before biopsy to be available to all eligible men. Our findings showed that the greatest increase was in England where the roll out of mpMRI before biopsy has been prioritised by health commissioners, so is becoming more available.
