HC Deb 08 December 1986 vol 107 c66W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he has anything to add to his answer of 6 November, Official Report, column 580, about health authorities with cervical cancer screening schemes in operation on 31 March in respect of Brent district health authority.

Mrs. Currie

On 31 March 1986 Brent was operating a cervical cancer screening scheme backed up by a limited computer system. Since 30 September Brent and Harrow have been operating a joint computerised scheme by arrangement with their corresponding family practitioner committees. I am glad that this has enabled women in Harrow to benefit from the scheme sooner than had been anticipated.
