Cervical Screening

The best way to protect yourself from cervical cancer is to attend your cervical screening (smear test) when invited.  The NHS Cervical Screening Programme invites all women from the age of 25 to 64 to attend cervical screening. Women aged 25 to 49 are offered screening every 3 years and those aged 50 to 64 are offered screening every 5 years.
