Preview

• The Cervical Screening Programme (CSP) in the United Kingdom is fully integrated across the lifetime of a woman and across all clinical disciplines. • Cervical screening is estimated to prevent up to 80% of all cases of cervical cancer in the United Kingdom. • All aspects of the programme are defined by published specifications and standards. • The programme has high population coverage and is rigorously quality assured. • Liquid-Based Cytology (LBC) implementation will be complete in 2008. • Maintaining the protection currently offered by cervical screening while new technologies are implemented will be a challenge, but can be achieved.
