New screening masterclass dates announced

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: General

The UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) has announced 2 new dates for its popular screening masterclass.

These masterclass sessions will run on:

  • Tuesday, 15 October, 2024
  • Tuesday, 19 November, 2024

Email if you would like to book a place, telling us your role and which of the dates you would prefer. Please also include the words ‘screening masterclass’ in the subject line of your email.

Places are always highly sought after, so please apply early to avoid missing out.


Screening masterclasses are run by the screening team in DHSC which support the work of the UK NSC, and other screening experts. It is a great interactive learning session for people from a wide range of backgrounds and with varying levels of screening knowledge

Sessions are held over Microsoft Teams and use different teaching methods, including case studies, quizzes (to test how well the facilitators have delivered the knowledge, not to catch anyone out) and practical exercises.

The day session includes an in-depth look at:

  • what screening is (and is not)
  • how you define a high-quality screening service
  • how to be an effective public health practitioner
  • the current NHS screening programmes
  • the role and remit of the UK NSC
  • quality assurance (QA) in action

We leave space in the programme for experience sharing, questions and your feedback.

The classes are facilitated by screening expert Dr Angela Raffle, supported by Jo Harcombe and Nadia Permalloo.
