Cervical Smear Testing

 

This is a very important program offered to women aged 25 – 64.

 

Smear tests, or cervical screening as you might often hear it referred to by your nurse or doctor, is the term used to describe the way in which we check for any abnormal cells in your cervix (which is the neck of your womb).

 

If changes are found, they can be quickly treated to ensure they don’t turn into anything more serious like cervical cancer. This test is vitally important because regular tests can significantly reduce your chance of getting cervical cancer.

 

We operate a recall system which means that you will automatically be contacted when your smear is due – this will transfer with you if you move from one GP surgery to another.
