Numerous resources for cancer screening exist on Ardens including reports, patient status alerts and templates.


Go to Clinical Reporting > Ardens > Conditions | Cancer > Screening | Invitations to find reports that identify patients that are possibly due for cancer screening. You should still check on the NHS Cervical Screening Management System (currently still Open Exter) to ensure that the patient is eligible. 

Patient Status Alerts

If a patient has cancer screening that is overdue, they will have a !! icon under their name. Clicking this will open up the cancer screening template.


The cancer screening templates include guidance of the cancer screening guidelines, along with links to cancer resources and SNOMED-CT coding to record advice and outcomes. There is also a pre-set SMS, email and letter that can be sent to patients.

Health Checks and Reviews

The cancer screening resources are also included as part of routine health checks, including Learning Disability Health Checks, NHS Health Checks and Mental Health SMI Reviews.
