Cervical Screening Audit

Centre for Cancer Prevention

Funding Body: NHS Cancer Screening Programme
Project Investigator: Peter Sasieni

Overview

This project collects the cervical screening histories of all women diagnosed with cervical cancer in England and Wales (with estimated 95% coverage) together with details of at least two randomly selected controls per cancer case. Additionally slide review (of both cytology and histology)is conducted on all slides within 10 years of diagnosis. The database currently includes over 11,000 women with cervical cancer.

We publish an annual report and statistical summary.

Additionally, the audit has led to several publications which have provided evidence on which to base Cervical Screening policy and guidelines.
