Cervical screening, or the “smear test”, is a routine health check that identifies potentially harmful cells and changes on the cervix. Cervical screening is not a test for cancer but catching any changes early can reduce your risk of developing cervical cancer. Cervical cancer kills two women every day. Regular screenings can help reduce that number, which is why it’s so important you attend your screening when invited.
The nurses who deliver cervical screenings are trained to do all they can to put you at ease during your appointment. They can answer any questions or concerns you may have. However, whether you attend your screening or not, is ultimately your choice.
If you’re due to have a cervical screening, you’ll receive an invite letter in the post. Don’t ignore it, book your cervical screening appointment with your GP practice today.
If you missed your previous appointment or are unsure if you are due a screening, please contact your GP practice who will be able to advise you.
