Cervical Screening

Cervical screening is not a test for cancer. It is a method of preventing cancer by detecting and treating early abnormalities, which, if left untreated could lead to cancer in a woman’s cervix (the neck of the womb).

Early detection and treatment can prevent 75% of cancers developing, but like other screening tests, it is not perfect. It may not always detect early cell changes that could lead to cancer.

Cervical screening is offered to women at 3-yearly intervals between the ages of 25 and 49, and 5-yearly intervals between the ages of 50 and 65. All the Nurses at the Practice are qualified in taking cervical screening samples, and all attend regular updates.
