National Screening Advisory Committee (NSAC)

The National Screening Advisory Committee (NSAC) is an independent advisory committee and will advise the Minister and Department of Health on all new proposals for population-based screening programmes and revisions to existing programmes.

The Committee will play a significant strategic role in the development and consideration of population-based screening programmes in Ireland.

The National Screening Advisory Committee does not have any operational role in the day to day running of any screening programmes. That remains the responsibility of the Health Service Executive (HSE).
