§ Yvette Cooper
The Department is currently establishing an advisory group, which will oversee the commissioning and running of the pilot sites for HPV testing and provide expert advice and support on all aspects of the scope of the project. A limited competition exercise will be held in the summer to select the pilot sites, and it is anticipated they will be chosen by the autumn. Testing will begin when preparatory work at each site is complete.
