Sign up now for one of our screening masterclasses

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: General information

We have run screening masterclasses for several years and they remain ever popular and useful for participants.

The classes are run by screening expert Dr Angela Raffle and aimed at:

  • public health specialists
  • those involved in commissioning, managing or providing screening services

Leads within NHS provider trusts may also find them of value.

Colleagues from other organisations can sometimes take part. Please contact us to discuss this on a case by case basis.

Book your place

We currently have a few places left on a masterclass on 10 October 2018. We have also now started taking bookings for 13 November 2018. Both are being held in central London.

To book a place on one of these or to put your name on a waiting list for future dates, please email Esther Rose at

There is a £48 fee to non-PHE staff to cover the venue and catering.

What we do on the day

The structure of the masterclass has evolved in answer to participants’ feedback from past sessions.

The day is informative, interactive and often fun and includes:

  • a basic refresher on what screening is and is not
  • defining a high quality screening service
  • public health skills
  • tips for commissioning high quality screening programmes
  • how to identify common problems and share experiences
  • the role and remit of the UK National Screening Committee
  • an overview of policy and practice of current NHS screening programmes
  • a question and answer session with the Director of Screening

A message from your teacher

Please arrive in time, full of enthusiasm and ready to enjoy this interactive learning experience. I really look forward to welcoming you and working with you on the day.
