NHS Screening Programmes

The NHS runs a number of national screening programmes. Screening is a way of finding people who are at a higher risk of developing a problem so that early treatment can be offered or advice given.

Cervical Screening

We offer cervical screening (it is sometimes called a smear test) as part of the national programme. All ladies between the ages of 25 to 50 years are offered a  smear test every three years and ladies aged 50 to 64 years are offered a test every five years.

Smear tests are a way of identifying patients who may have changes in the cells of the cervix which could turn cancerous.

If you are due a smear, please contact the reception to book an appointment with our practice nurse.
