Action on Screening
Cancer screening saves lives and catches cancer early. The availability of high-quality population-based screening is one of the strongest weapons we can use to reduce the high death rate from cancer in Ireland. Early detection is vital in the battle against cancer and since the rollout of both BreastCheck, CervicalCheck and BowelScreen, there is no doubt that lives have been saved by virtue of these screening programmes being available.
However, we need to improve existing and future screening programmes.
