Since 2001, the British Association of Retinal Screening (BARS) has been the UK's professional organisation for those of us who provide diabetic eye screening services.
CPD and qualifications
As you know, e-learning for screening is changing. We have asked you to complete any outstanding e-learning modules on the CPD Screening website by 17 March.
Public Health England doesn’t directly train people how to carry out screening in the NHS. We’d love to visit you all but sadly don’t have the resources to do this.
The University of Warwick is again offering a one day workshop in health screening aimed at any staff involved in the provision of NHS screening programmes.
We’ve updated the antenatal and newborn screening e-learning module in line with clinical best practice and quality assurance requirements.
I was appointed antenatal and newborn screening coordinator at King’s College Hospital, London, on 1 June 2014.
Nearly 300 staff from local screening services attended the recent half-day update sessions to support the implementation of the new Level 3 Diploma for Health Screeners qualification.
I attended this year's screening module at Warwick University. I’m an ophthalmologist with a master’s degree in public health but that qualification had very little content in terms of screening.
