The PHE Screening team
Public Health England (PHE) provides support and advice to the NHS-led national screening programmes. These programmes identify apparently healthy people who may be at increased risk of a disease or condition, enabling earlier treatment and informed decisions. PHE also hosts the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) secretariat and supports the work of the committee.
