About the NHS Screening programmes

These elearning modules support the training of healthcare professionals involved in the delivery of the NHS Screening Programmes in England.

Each module includes an assessment with a set pass percentage. When you have completed a module you can print off a certificate for your records.

NOTE: Public Health England (PHE) ceased to exist on 30 September 2021. From 1 October 2021 most PHE screening functions moved to NHS England and Improvement (NHSEI)
