Abstract

In the first year in which all areas delivered screening, the NCSP's total coverage was low, particularly in men. However, coverage was higher in deprived populations, who were also at increased risk of testing positive for infection. This analysis provides a baseline by which to monitor social variations in NCSP delivery as coverage expands.
