Cervical Smears

What is cervical screening?

  • Cervical screening (a smear test) checks the health of your cervix. The cervix is the opening to your womb from your vagina.

  • It's not a test for cancer, it's a test to help prevent cancer.

  • All women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64 should be invited by letter.

  • During the screening appointment, a small sample of cells will be taken from your cervix.

  • The sample is tested for changes to the cells of your cervix.

  • Finding abnormal changes early means they can be monitored or treated so they do not get a chance to turn into cervical cancer.

  • You'll get your results by letter, usually in about 2 weeks.

Important

Try not to put off cervical screening. It's one of the best ways to protect yourself from cervical cancer. Please select the link below for helping you decide.
