Cervical screening: training to use a new cytology system

This document explains the training requirements for all cervical cytology staff who will convert to using a different cytology technique.



This document is for individual staff who move between regions or laboratories where a different cervical cytology technique is used from the one in which they trained, or for whole laboratory conversion from one system to another.

System conversion training is mandatory and this guidance is for all staff (medical and scientific) who screen and report cervical cytology for the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.
