Creating a new NHS England: Health Education England, NHS Digital and NHS England have merged. More about the merger.

Screening services

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.

Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening

We identify individuals at highest risk of abdominal aortic aneurysm, and invite them for screening.

Bowel cancer screening

We run 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

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.

Cervical screening

The national cervical screening system invites women for a smear test based upon criteria such as age, location, GP and previous test results.

Cancer screening programme national statistics

Cancer screening programme national statistics were commissioned by the national cancer screening programmes.
