Improving equity in screening: A strategic framework 2023-2027

‘Improving Equity in Screening’ is the National Screening Service 5-year strategic framework outlining our priority areas for improving equity in screening for the years 2023-2027.

This framework sets out how we can better understand and improve equity across our 4 screening programmes. We want everyone to understand what screening is and to be able to participate in screening if they want to.

It was developed with a wide range of stakeholders including screening participants, representatives from the community, voluntary and statutory sectors, and our staff.

We have established an Equity Oversight Committee to oversee the development and implementation of action plans in each of the priority areas.
