UK National Screening Committee Policy Database

reposted from:

This is a complete list of all the UK NSC's policies. Some policies say that screening should be provided for everyone or some people, other policies that screening is not currently recommended.
Note that just because screening is recommended, this does not mean that it is systematically provided across the whole of the UK.
When no good quality research evidence is available, or research has found that screening for a particular condition causes more harm than good, the UK NSC will recommend that routine screening should NOT take place.
All UK NSC policies are reviewed regularly, usually on a 3 year cycle. Read more about the review process.

Only 5 Adult National Screening Programmes are recommended

About 30 Adult National Screening programmes are NOT recommended.
