Contraception & Sexual Health
Cervical screening is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating early changes which, if left untreated, could lead to cancer of the cervix. The screening test is offered to all women aged 25-64 and is carried out by our practice nurses and some GP’s. You will receive a letter when your test is due. Women are invited every 3 years until the age of 50 then every 5 years until 64. For further information go to www.cancerscreening.nhs.uk/cervical
