Cervical Smearslogo

By appointment only
Women aged between 25 & 50 are advised to have a cervical smear every 3 years. Women between 50 and 64 are advised to have a test every 5 years. This is a simple quick test which may detect early changes in the womb. If these are treated straight away cancer may be prevented from developing. Patients are called for a smear by letter. If you think you are due for a smear please contact reception to arrange a 15 minute appointment.

If you fall outside the age groups but feel that a smear might be necessary, please consult the Practice Nurse or your GP for advice.
