This website is a resource for laboratory medicine professionals who are required to understand and manage the role of laboratory medicine within the National Cervical Screening Program (NCSP).
The NCSP relies upon the successful interaction of several components to deliver effective results and the role of laboratory medicine is integral to that interactive process. This website is intended as a guide to the various components of the NCSP with particular emphasis on those areas which are of most relevance to laboratory medicine. It provides summaries of the critical areas and links to detailed resources. Some modules contain short self-test questions.
