Around 130 delegates attended the first ever national PHE Screening Inequalities Conference.
Jo has joined PHE Screening from the Department of Health where she has worked on public health policy since 1996. She has worked on screening policy since 2002 and was secretary to the UK National Screening Committee from 2007 to 2013. Screening is really important to Jo and she is looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
Outside of work Jo is an avid Bradford City fan and was disappointed to see them lose at the Wembley play-off final earlier this year.
A year ago we launched the PHE Screening inequalities strategy. Please complete a short survey to tell us if it is having a positive impact.
We are moving the PHE Screening inequalities strategy forward with a series of actions and work streams.
The PHE inequalities strategy will aim to close the screening inequalities gap and ensure equitable access to screening to all eligible populations.
