What PHE Screening has been blogging about

Here’s a list of every blog issued in January and February 2018.

GPs’ role in helping people decide whether they want screening

It’s important GPs help ensure everyone gets the information they need in order to decide if screening is the right thing for them depending on their circumstances.

Get ready for our new national screening print provider

On Monday, 2 April, 2018, a new supplier, APS Group, will take over the printing, storage and distribution of these leaflets. To prepare for this change, there will be 2 weeks of ‘down time’ – from Monday 19 March to Sunday, 1 April, 2018 – when local screening providers will not be able to order leaflets from our current national printing supplier, Harlow Printing Ltd.

Get animated about our new screening resource

We have worked with the NHS Choices video team and an animation company to produce a new screening animation, which in just 2 ½ minutes explains all the types of screening offered during pregnancy and for newborn babies.
