**Cervical Screening**

Posted: 8 March 2019

If you could reduce your risk of getting cervical cancer, would you?

  • Did you know…
    • Cervical cancer is largely preventable
    • cervical screening (smear tests) saves 5,000 lives a year in the UK
    • a cervical screening lasts five minutes but the impact of cervical cancer can last a lifetime.
  • Book an appointment to have your screening with a nurse or doctor at your GP practice today, you can request a female if you prefer. Appointments are available in the evening and at the weekend across North West London seven days a week. Ask your GP practice receptionist for more details.
  • Cervical screening is a test to detect abnormalities that can be treated to prevent cancer developing. Being tested regularly (every 3-5 years) provides a high degree of protection against developing cervical cancer.
  • All women aged 25 to 64 who are registered with a GP are invited for cervical screening. If you don’t have an invitation and are unsure if you are due for a screening you should contact your GP to find out.
