Primary care population screening update, autumn 2015

Download the primary care screening letter.

I'm Dr Anne Mackie, Director of Screening at PHE. This is our first letter to GPs in England. We know you're busy – we plan to send just 2 of these a year. They contain the most important screening news and updates for GPs.

The first one covers:

  • management of women aged 20-24 with abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • PSA testing
  • staying in touch with screening developments
  • current policy consultations

If you're interested in screening, and would be willing for us to contact you directly once or twice a year when we need to get the views of primary care about a particular screening development, then we're also asking if you can leave us your details.

Please do let me know whether the letter is useful and what you'd like to hear about next time. You can contact me at

Anne Mackie head and shoulders.

Dr Anne Mackie

Director, PHE Screening
