Cervical Smear Tests
Cervical screening is a method of preventing cervical cancer by detecting abnormal cells in the cervix (the lower part of the womb). Cervical screening is not a test for cancer, but it is a test to check the health of the cervix. Most women's test results show that everything is normal. But for one in 20 women, the test will show some changes in the cells of the cervix. All women aged between 25 and 64 are invited for a smear test. Being screened regularly means that any abnormal changes in the cervix can be identified early on and, if necessary, treated to stop cancer developing.
Smear tests are carried out by a practice nurse. You will be sent a reminder when your smear test is due. Smear test results will be sent to you by post.
Smears tests are important. However, if you do not wish to have a smear test please come in and discuss it with your doctor.
If your child is due a vaccination please see one of our practice nurses.
If you are going abroad please see one of our practice nurses well in advance (at least 6 weeks), as many vaccinations need to be given several weeks before you travel.
