GPs and health organisations will be able to improve cervical screening rates thanks to an innovative new online data tool | NHS Digital
It is hoped that the interactive dashboard will help identify areas where screening levels could be improved and encourage work to boost coverage.
The dashboard will provide more detailed and timely information about cervical screening and will help Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), GP practices and local authorities to improve coverage rates for the potentially lifesaving test, which are currently falling.
NHS Digital, Public Health England (PHE) and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust have collaborated on the initiative, which aims to provide easier access to the latest data about cervical screening3. This is part of a PHE-led project to empower GP practices and CCGs to improve cervical screening attendance and coverage rates.
