Today we’ve published our new easy guide to bowel scope screening to ensure information about bowel screening is equally accessible to people with learning disabilities and anyone who struggles with written English.
Karen Manser joined Public Health England in December 2015. She has worked in scientific publishing since graduating with a BSc in Biochemistry with Science Communication in 2009.
She now works as a Publications and Information Officer in the screening team. She develops public and professional information for all the national population screening programmes, including leaflets and online content.
Karen lives in Hertfordshire and enjoys exploring new places, scuba diving and keeping fit.
Since August 2016, all providers of NHS care and/or publicly-funded adult social care have been legally obliged to follow the Accessible Information Standard.
