The outcomes of the independent review announced on 2 May 2018, following the breast screening incident, will help to inform IT system proposals for other national screening programmes such as cervical screening. This review is due to report by November.

NHS England and Public Health England are committed to the introduction of a primary human papillomavirus screening test as part of the national cervical screening programme in 2019. This includes working with Primary Care Support England on a new IT system to support cervical screening.
