HC Deb 13 January 1987 vol 108 c169W
28. Mr. Cohen

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if any additional resources are to be provided to local health authorities to implement fully computerised call and recall systems for cervical cancer screening; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Currie

No additional resources are to be provided, and we are satisfied that, at the present time, none are called for. Improvements to cervical cancer screening programmes have been made a service development priority for all health authorities, and as a result all authorities plan to have computerised call and recall screening systems in place by April 1988.
