NHS Cervical Screening Programme Cervical Cytology Atlas, published in 2006. This was intended as training manual and reference guide used by trainee cytology screeners.

This book contains references images so trainee cytology screeners know what types of cell changes to look for when assessing people’s samples after a cervical screening. Cervical screening is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating early abnormalities which, if left untreated, could lead to cancer in the cervix (the neck of the womb). Samples are taken and added to glass slides which are then viewed through a microscope in a laboratory.

There are four 4 NHS approved cervical cytology training centres in the United Kingdom, including the London Regional Cytology Training Centre where this atlas was used. Originally founded in 1979 by Dr Elizabeth Hudson, the Centre continues to provide training for medical practitioners, sample takers and screeners.
