Cervical screening service

Regular cervical screening will help to detect abnormal cell changes in the cervix (the lower part of the womb) before cancer has had a chance to develop. The NHS cervical screening program is co-ordinated by NHS public Health England. All women aged between 25 and 64 are invited for cervical screening. Women aged between 25 and 49 are invited for testing every three years, and women older than this are invited every five years.

The Nurse will take a sample which is then sent for analysis and the results will be sent directly to you within two weeks.

If you have missed your cervical screening invitation please contact the practice to have your smear done, sooner rather than later. Don’t be afraid, remember cervical screening is NOT a test for cancer; it is a test to check the health of the cells of your cervix.
