Cervical Cytology (Smear Tests)

Cervical Screening (Smear test) checks the health of your cervix. The cervix is the opening to your womb from your vagina. The NHS offers a smear test to every female with a cervix who is between the ages of 25 – 64-years-old. The smear test is not a test for cancer it is a test to help us prevent cancer.

You’ll be sent an invitation letter in the post when it’s time to book your cervical screening appointment. Your letter will tell you where you can go for cervical screening and how to book. Most cervical screening is done in a GP surgery by a nurse or doctor. When you get this letter, please contact us either by telephone or online to book an appointment for the smear to be carried out. It is extremely important that you book and attend for this appointment. Please see the link below for further information.
