The third Annual Report from Health Quality Improvement Programme describes the process and outcomes of care for 147,162 patients, diagnosed with breast cancer between 1st January 2014 and 31st December 2017 in England and Wales. The patterns of care received by people aged 70+ years are compared with the care received by people diagnosed with breast cancer aged 50–69 years. We also distinguish between the following groups of people with breast cancer:

1. Ductal carcinoma in situ.
2. Early invasive breast cancer.
3. Metastatic breast cancer.
