Celebrating best practice in cervical screening

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: NHS Cervical Screening Programme
A presentation stand has materials about cervical screening, including bunting and balloons.
Lots of areas are doing great things improving awareness and access to cervical screening

It’s important that all of us work together to help raise awareness of cervical screening and help women make an informed choice.

We know many of you are doing great things by improving awareness and access to cervical screening. Without your hard work we would not have the world class screening programme that we do.

Celebrating success

Take a minute to think about what is working well for you and any creative initiatives you’ve been involved with recently. Have you for example:

  • developed a campaign to address health inequalities in under-represented groups
  • developed a project or campaign which effectively engages with populations in a new or original way (this could also include innovative use of technology, or partnership work)
  • developed a project in which you asked for the views of your audience

If the answer to the questions above is yes, have you thought about sharing your learning and best practice by entering the Jo’s Trust Cervical Screening Awards?

Sharing learning and best practice may help others to improve, avoiding reinventing the wheel and enabling us to become more innovative.

Whether you are a health professional, a GP practice, an organisation or a community group, there is a category for you.

Closing date for applications is 13 September 2019.

    As a cytology screener facing unemployment from the 4th November after 18 years of service within the cervical screening programme, I don't feel that there is much to celebrate and find the timing of these posts extremely disrespectful and inappropriate towards the workers across England that are also going through the same as I am.

    Incredible timing as always. Thousands of cervical screening staff face losing their jobs imminently and the gov website posts this....Great practice as usual.
