The Council does, however, recommend conducting a regional pilot population screening programme with one-off screening of people around 50 years of age. This will allow a review of to what extent such a programme would provide health benefits and whether the benefits would outweigh the risks. Based on the results, a decision can be made as to whether the age limit of the programme should be lowered. One promising development that may improve the screening programme in the long term is customised screening. As such, the Council recommends that this be reviewed. In addition, the Council recommends continuing investment in increasing participation rates.
