The National Screening Unit has launched its social marketing programme to help increase screening rates, especially for priority women.

The new website,, combines breast and cervical screening programmes on one site to make it easier for women to find simple and relevant information about screening that they can access online and from any device. We will be continuously improving the website over time in response to feedback.

The National Screening Unit’s website,, now directs women to the Time to Screen website from the homepage. The information under the tab for health professionals remains unchanged.

The Time to Screen Facebook page promotes the new website, our screening programmes, personal stories and the work of providers.

Promotional material and information resources will continue to be reviewed and updated over the next 12 months.

Contact NSU’s communications advisor, Jeanie Watson, on [email protected] if you have screening stories, events or information you'd like to share on the Time to Screen Facebook page.
