Aim of Event

The event aimed to consider the policy levers, partnerships and evidence base that we can build on to improve reach of our Scottish screening programmes. The publication of the Cancer Plan in 2016 has a clear commitment to reduce inequalities in cancer screening (breast, bowel and cervical screening) and has committed £5m to initiatives that could help address barriers/issues for those less likely to engage. This event was designed help focus minds on the kinds of interventions that are likely to have greatest impact. It was an opportunity for NHS and Third sector partners to consider best practice models that could be considered at national and local level. There was also be a marketplace offering delegates an opportunity to familiarise themselves with a range of information materials/toolkits to support informed participation in the national screening programmes. 


The event is for colleagues in NHS Boards with a relevant screening and/or health inequalities portfolio.
