The second Parliamentary Review Committee for the National Cervical Screening Programme (NCSP) was undertaken in the first half of 2015.
The NCSP is independently reviewed every three years. The review is legislated under Part 4A, Section 1120, of the Health Act 1956.
In late 2014, Minister of Health Jonathan Coleman appointed previous members Dr Jeffrey Tan and Linda Thompson, and new appointment Gail Ward, to undertake the review.
The Committee’s report highlights NCSP successes and identifies key areas that will further strengthen the programme.
