The cervical screening programme advises that anyone with a cervix aged 25-64 have a cervical smear every 5 years. You may be called more often depending on your test results. 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. For more information on Cervical Smears please click here.
