Abstract Supporting the health system to reduce inequalities in screeningPHE screening inequalities strategyIntroductionPHE is responsible for world leading national screening programmes. While the concept of screening is inherently fair, variations in participation exist both within and between national screening programmes. This can result in people with the greatest need being the least likely to be screened. Method A PHE screening inequalities strategy has been developed and published with the support and collaboration of internal and external screening stakeholders. The strategy sets out the case for change and identifies key actions that PHE screening division can take to support the health system to reduce screening inequalities. Results Progress against the key actions identified in the strategy will be presented. This will include; the impact of a division wide inequalities objective on staff activity Improvements in data collection and audit the commissioning of a rapid literature review to ensure screening policies, service specifications and quality assurance activities are informed by the best available evidence specific actions undertaken by the screening quality assurance service development of specific inequality resources and tools how we are measuring progress - with case examples Conclusion Screening inequalities are unacceptable. The PHE Screening division is uniquely placed to support service providers to identify and address screening inequalities. The current demands on finite NHS resources necessitate continued vigilance and cooperative working to ensure all population groups have equitable access to high quality screening.
