Cervical Smears

Women aged from 25-49 should have a cervical smear every three years, and from 50-64 every five years.

This is a simple, quick test which can detect early changes that could lead to cervical cancer. The Practice offers a comprehensive cervical smear screening service, and all women in the above age groups will be invited when their smear is due.

The samples are now tested for Human Papilloma Virus: the nurse or the doctor will be able to give you details.
