Detail

This document describes the process used by the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) to review the evidence relating to the introduction, modification and cessation of national population screening programmes.

The process set out in the document builds on the UK NSC’s previous practice and will be revisited and refined in winter 2016 following:

  • the pilot of the annual call for new topics
  • further work on the UK NSC’s approach to development of rapid reviews
  • completion of a statement on cost effectiveness assessments
  • completion of a framework for consideration of ethical, social and legal issues relating to screening
