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


Go to Clinical Reporting > Ardens > Contracts | 2022 23 | NCD to find reports that identify patients with cancer screening that is overdue. These reports are also broken down to identify particular at-risk groups, as per the screenshot below. There are further reports under Clinical Reporting > Ardens > Conditions | Cancer

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.
