The Department, NHS England and Public Health England are considering the findings of Professor Sir Mike Richards’ report, together with recommendations made by the Public Accounts Committee and the Independent Breast Screening Review in 2019, as part of a wider screening improvement programme.

We intend to publish an implementation plan in spring 2020, which will build on the findings from Professor Richards’ review and include actions that will support delivery of our vision for a more personalised, targeted screening offer as set out in the Green Paper ‘Advancing our Health: Prevention in the 2020s’.
