NHS screening helpdesk closing at end of January 2024 

Any queries from healthcare professionals working in screening, that were previously directed to the helpdesk should be directed through routine business channels as follows:

  • Commissioning/contract queries from provider services should continue to be directed to the NHSE regional team as they are now.
  • Queries around interpretation of screening guidance, should be directed to the relevant local NHS Screening Quality Assurance Service (SQAS).
  • Incident reporting should continue to be in line with existing local reporting arrangements including reporting screening incidents to the local commissioner and SQAS teams.
  • Public queries: While the NHS Screening Helpdesk is a system facing service rather than a public facing service, any public queries should be dealt with as they are now by local services. Any public queries for NHS England nationally should be directed to the NHS England Customer Contact Centre.
  • MP queries: Any queries from MPs should be directed to The Parliamentary Team will direct to the national programme or NHSE regional teams, as appropriate.
  • A reminder that the process for NHS complaints is set out on this page.
