Creating Websites for the NHS
NHS Cancer Screening Programmes
We've had the privilege of working closely with England's Cancer Screening Programmes since 2000. Prof. Julietta Patnick CBE (Director at NHS Cancer Screening Programmes) had the foresight to advocate screening women for breast cancer in 1990 and the programmes have now expanded to include cervical screening and bowel cancer screening. Many lives have been saved and will be saved by the fantastic work by all that work in England's Cancer Screening Programmes.
Over the years their website has expanded to four major sections, all with publications for both public and professionals, audio files for the hard of seeing and British signed videos for the hard of hearing. The latest programme covers bowel cancer screening; one video is very helpful to the public as it shows what to do when you receive the test kit through the post. Working with the bowel cancer screening test kit can be just a little daunting so the video is really worth watching.

East Pennine Cytology Training Centre
Due to the competitive nature of this NHS sector EPCTC needed a website design company that had strong SEO skills that would make sure their organisation was found by NHS staff seeking cytology training. They came on board with The Net Effect several years ago and they have been #1 in Google for 'cytology training courses' ever since.
A member of staff at EPCTC is responsible for publishing 'latest news' and 'latest training courses' using a 'simple to use' content management software system provided by The Net Effect.
The Net Effect can achieve the same for your NHS Dept.
Although there are currently big changes within the NHS and Public Health England (PHE) we are available to assist your department if you choose to outsource your website requirements. We are a small and flexible team that will fit in with your work ethic perfectly to ensure fast delivery to targets.
We can help with:
- Content management software (CMS)
- Internal search engine
- Converting video and audio
- Visitor analysis
- Search engine optimisation
- Publication and news embargoes
- A sympathetic ear :)

Please contact us to organise a meeting about your website.
If you prefer to chat on the phone with either Wendy or Graham, please call 0114 251 3377. We are usually chained to our desks between 8.00am and 6pm.
The NHS Cancer Screening site contains audio and video files in several languages, 100s of PDFs for professionals and the public and an internal search engine to locate specific information. Visit their site
Working closely with the team at EPCTC we elevated the site to the top in Google's SERPs. We continue to have a close working relationship with the business manager and Andrew Ash, a Consultant Biomedical Scientist, who also updates their website with latest news and courses.
