• Sending of a further timed appointment to all clients who DNA their breast screening appointment.
Cervical Screening is one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer. The test checks for any abnormal cell changes in your cervix, finding cell changes early means they can be monitored and treated, reducing the risk of cells turning into cancer. Women aged 25 to 49 are eligible for a smear test every 3 years and women aged 50 to 64 are eligible for the test every 5 years. Invitations are sent out when the test is due. Try not to put of cervical screening - upon receipt of an invitation - please book an appointment with one of our practice nurses.
