smearCervical Smears

If you are aged between 25 and 64 you are entitled to regular smear tests under the national cervical screening programme.

Smear tests are designed to reduce the number of women developing and dying from cervical cancer by detecting very early changes that can be simply treated.

Smear tests can be done at the surgery and local family planning and sexual health clinics.

Smear tests are normally offered every 3 years (every 5 years after aged 50). Please ask at Reception if you are unsure when your last smear was.

If you want to have your smear done at the surgery we are able to offer you an appointment in private, comfortable surroundings with an understanding practice nurse. Please ask about the appropriate time to have your smear done when booking your appointment.
