Public information leaflets

Public Health England (PHE) develops the information leaflets used by the NHS to invite people for the population screening programmes and enable them to make informed choices.

On GOV.UK, we publish the leaflets in accessible HTML format. This is best for people reading the information online, such as on their phones.

For people without easy internet access, it can sometimes be helpful to print a leaflet out. While its possible to print HTML leaflets, PDF files are currently the easier option for printing.

Both formats are available in the tables below.
