We provide a number of services to help support screening programmes. Our services help ensure that high risk groups receive screening which can detect serious diseases early.
NHS Digital runs separate bowel cancer screening systems in England and the Isle of Man. The systems identify eligible people to be screened and invite them to participate in bowel screening.
Breast screening services in the UK are supported by NHS Digital who provide the software to manage the call and recall of women who are eligible for breast screening.
Aggregated statistical data are collected from primary care organisations' NHAIS systems and used to assist the running of the screening programmes.
