Cervical Screening Awareness Week
21st - 21th January 2019 is cervical screening awareness week.

If you are aged between 25 and 64 years old you should be eligible for cervical screening. Public health England and the Practice will contact inviting you to the Practice for this free test. This test is an intimate exam and will be performed by a female Nurse.

Cervical screening saves 5,000 lives a year in the UK

If you are feeling anxious beforehand, you can ask a member of your family or friend to accompany you. Your practice nurse or GP will be happy to talk through any anxieties that you have prior to your cervical screening appointment

Cervical screening is NOT a test to find cancer. It is a screening test to detect changes to the cells of the cervix, which are called cervical abnormalities or pre-cancer. Between 90 and 94% of all screening results come back normal, with no abnormalities found. It is important to remember that an abnormal screening result rarely means cancer.

Having regular cervical screening offers the best protection against developing cervical cancer

If you want help to stay healthy and prevent the spread of flu among family, friends and work colleagues, taking advantage of the winter flu jab is a good first step. Flu is contagious and it can be passed through coughing, sneezing or by touching infected surfaces or people. Most flu outbreaks usually happen in late autumn or winter, and, for most people, it's an unpleasant but not a life-threatening condition


Our first two flu clinics are:


  • Friday 6th October 2017
  • Saturday 14th October 2017

Please get in touch to arrange an appointment for your jab.
