BAC Cytology Workforce Survey

The BAC is undertaking a survey of the NHS Cervical Screening Programme cytology workforce to assist with informing the decision making on HPV primary screening implementation

This is a great time of change in the CSP, and we want to get information from all staff, Pathologists, ABMSPs, BMS and Cytoscreeners, to help in looking at future options.

Please could you circulate to all cervical cytology staff, especially those who are not BAC members and emphasise the importance of this survey and strongly encourage them to complete the survey by 6pm Wednesday 29th  March 2017. We want to get a reply from every individual person reporting cervical cytology within the CSP, at all grades and positions, so please pass this link to the survey to any members of your department who may not have received it so they can take part. The survey should not take much longer than 10 minutes to complete.

The survey results will be shared with PHE and NHSE to help with this decision making for the future.
