UK National Screening Committee 25 years of recommendations

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:
