The UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) is celebrating 25 years of making evidence-based recommendations on population screening.
Over that time it has had a profound impact on health screening in the UK, as well as being a respected international leader in this area.
The UK NSC recommended national screening programmes that have:
- saved tens of thousands of lives
- prevented huge amounts of serious illness
- helped millions of people make better informed decisions about their health
As Professor Bob Steele, current chair of the committee, has said:
Thanks to our wonderful NHS, I believe our population screening programmes here in the UK are second to none, and long may that continue.
