Practical Evaluations

Practical evaluation reports

To ensure that equipment is appropriate for use in the NHSBSP, practical evaluations are undertaken by selected services within the screening programme to assess the use of new equipment which has already undergone technical evaluation by the NCCPM. The evaluations assess the efficacy of equipment in a clinical setting but are not intended to be clinical trials.

Further guidance and information on the NHSBSP services is online
