Screening

1 April 2020: Covid-19 update

Following the increasing pressures placed on the NHS by Covid-19 and the government advice to the public to stay at home, NHS England and NHS Improvement (London Region) is halting the implementation of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), Diabetic Eye Screening Programme (DESP) and cancer screening uptake improvement initiatives. This will limit the risk of infection to screening staff and patients and also enable the deployment of key NHS professionals to support the Covid-19 response. There are currently regional and national plans in development either to slow down or pause various elements of the screening pathways. These plans will be shared with practices once they have been finalised.
