Cervical Cancer Screening
Cervical screening is not a test for diagnosing cervical cancer. It is a test to check the health of the cervix, which is in the lower part of the womb.
For many women the test results show that everything is fine; but for 1 in 10 women, the test show changes in the cells that can be caused by many things.
Most of these changes will not lead to cervical cancer, however, it is important to arrange a meeting with us.
There are no scheduled appointments for this service. All appointments can be booked at the reception. Clinics are available throughout the day between Monday to Fridays and even some Saturday mornings.
We offer the test to all women aged between 25 and 64.
Smears are done every 3 years between the ages of 25 and 49, and every 5 years between 49 and 64.
Results are sent by post, so it is important the we have up-to-date contact details.
For further concerns or discussions, please contact your GP or Mrs. Debbie Stanway.
