THERE’S NOTHING TO FEAR FROM YOUR SMEAR TEST

Having your smear test (cervical screening) is an important way to make sure you’re healthy and notice any changes to your cervix before they become a problem.

It’s not a check for cancer – it’s a test all women aged 25 to 64 should have every three to five years. And it only takes about five minutes.

  • Women aged 25 to 49 will be invited every 3 years
  • Women aged 50 to 64 will be invited every 5 years

You will receive a letter in the post from your GP inviting you to book an appointment.
If you have missed your most recent appointment, contact your GP today to rebook.
