Cervical Smears
NHS cervical screening helps prevent cervical cancer.  It saves as many as 5,000 lives from cervical cancer each year in the UK.  The NHS offers cervical screening to all women aged 25 to 49 every 3 years and to all women aged 50 to 64 every 5 years. This is because most cervical cancers develop in women aged 25 to 64.  Please book a twenty minute appointment with the Practice Nurse.
