Plans for a phased restart of the HSE’s screening programmes have been announced, with CervicalCheck and Diabetic RetinaScreen programmes restarting in July followed by BreastCheck and BowelScreen in September/October. The programmes were paused in March 2020 on Public Health advice due to COVID-19. Invitations and reminders for people who are now overdue screening will be sent on a phased basis, in line with programme prioritisation. Screening will look different with protective measures in place to protect both participants and staff.
