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.
Find out more about PHE Screening and this blog.
Watch our 44 second video for an overview of how the blog works.
