Keep on blogging. That was one of the main messages from the results of our recent survey of the UK National Screening Committee’s online presence.
A total of 133 of you responded to our survey to assess the UK NSC’s screening recommendations website, gov.uk pages and blog. Respondents, including NHS screening staff, the public, patient organisations, researchers and commissioners, provided valuable feedback that we’ll study to help ensure our web pages best meet your needs.
Most survey respondents were blog readers and said they found the articles useful or very useful. Many of the remaining respondents had not previously been aware of the blog and have now subscribed to regular updates. The number of UK NSC blog subscribers has more than doubled since May 2022 and stands at well over 1,800.
Feedback on the blog article themes, length and style was particularly positive.
The survey has given us valuable feedback on why people visit the UK NSC’s web pages, what information they find most useful, what they’d like to see more of and what we could improve.
Your suggestions for improvements included more information on the committee’s screening evidence reviews, improved search functionality, signposting to existing screening programme guidance and clearer links to screening recommendations that have been archived.
We will now analyse your responses in detail to determine what we can do to increase awareness of the UK NSC's work, improve our online content and make it easier for you all to find the information you need.
Keep up to date
We’ll post details of new screening seminars on this blog. You can register to receive updates direct to your inbox, so there’s no need to keep checking for new articles. If you have any questions about this blog article, or about the work of the UK NSC, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
