Job Role:

The current Cervical Cancer Screening call/recall system sits on the ageing National Health Application and Infrastructure Services (NHAIS) platform, which is posing a significant risk to the NHS Cervical Screening Programme.

The new CSMS will also provide the Cervical Screening Programme with a contemporary technology platform, in which it can more easily enact its priorities as well ministerial priorities, such as the reduction in health inequalities through the increase in uptake rates of cancer screening.
