Cervical screening issues causing delays for women in East

The article below may be of interest to members, although many of us working in the English CSP will be too aware of these sorts of issues

The BAC are working with NHSE on how to help improve CSP delivery, and ways in which labs can look to reduce backlogs and hence improve turn around times for women. Current identified mitigation plans may have helped some areas, but the need for this has outstripped the available capacity. The BAC are hopeful that, given that this has been on going for far too many months, an announcement on this will be made soon that will help alleviate the problem.
