Population screening programmes identify apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk or a disease or condition, enabling earlier treatment and better informed decisions. They are implemented on the advice of the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC), which oversees screening policy in all four nations, and works with the different implementation bodies to support delivery.
The Public Health England (PHE) screening division consists of the national programme teams and the screening quality assurance service (SQAS). PHE also hosts the UK NSC secretariat.
