Leaflets to support the NHS population screening programmes, and how healthcare professionals can order them.
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 materials for the antenatal and newborn screening programmes, cancer screening programmes, diabetic eye screening and abdominal aortic aneurysm screening.
See a list of available NHS population screening programme leaflets at the bottom of this page.
