Cervical Screening

The cervical screening programme advise that 25-50 year olds have a cervical smear every 3 years; 50-65 year olds – 5 yearly and 66-71 year olds will be screening only if they have previously had any abnormalities. You will be notified by letter directly from the Cervical Screening Department when your smear is due. Please ensure you arrange an appointment with a practice nurse for when you are mid cycle as this provides a more accurate result.
