Saturday Smear Tests

Posted by: h85041 - Posted on:

We now offer cervical screening appointments on selected Saturdays. Please inquire by calling (020) 8946 5681 or ask at the reception to book as these appointments are in demand.

All women who are registered with a GP are invited for cervical screening:

  • aged 25 to 49 – every 3 years
  • aged 50 to 64 – every 5 years
  • over 65 – only women who have recently had abnormal tests


It is best advised to make sure that your appointment is booked during the middle of your menstrual cycle (usually 14 days from the start of your last period), as this can ensure a better sample of cells are taken.
