Cervical Screening

Once you reach your 25th birthday you will start to receive letters to have a cervical smear. These are extremely important so that we can pick up any cell changes before they become cancerous.

How often do I need a smear?

So long as previous smears have been normal:

aged 25-49 years every 3 years

aged 50-64 years every 5 years

over 65 not needed unless you have had previously abnormal smears or it has been a long time since your last smear.

What do I do if my smear is now due?

Please make an appointment with any of our nurses, but please let Reception know why you are coming.
