An update about the above has been posted on the PHE website,( https://phescreening.blog.gov.uk/2016/04/13/hpv-primary-screening-in-the-cervical-screening-programme/). It summarises the current position, and may help many of us working in the programme. There are still many unknowns about the possible future shape of the CSPs nationally, and the statement does acknowledge the problems that many laboratories face in this time of change. Contact details are also given if you have specific queries not dealt with in the update.
You may also find signing up for the PHE blogs of use, and help keep you up to date with developments not only in cervical screening but also in other areas of health care.
