The national service specifications require local screening providers to use nationally developed patient and professional leaflets. These leaflets are written and reviewed according to the PHE Screening publication production and review process. This ensures they are accurate, provide balanced information and are developed with appropriate input from the public and professionals.
PHE Screening supplies these leaflets free of charge to NHS and private providers of NHS screening programmes.
Free supplies of leaflets are not available for other organisations.
This page provides details for ordering printed copies of materials for the national NHS screening programmes.
Some products, including all translations, easy guides, posters and leaflets required in very small quantities, are only available for download and local printing. These can be found on programme-specific publications for abdominal aortic aneurysm, bowel cancer, breast, cervical, diabetic eye, fetal anomaly, infectious diseases in pregnancy, newborn and infant physical examination, newborn blood spot, newborn hearing and sickle cell and thalassaemia screening.
Some leaflets have passed their published review dates. In these cases we have established that the content is still accurate so the leaflets are still appropriate for use.
How to order
To order leaflets for free you will need to confirm you are:
