We now offer cervical screening appointments on selected Saturdays. Please enquire by phone or at reception, you must book asap 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’s best to make your appointment for when you don’t have your period. If possible, try to book an appointment 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 is taken.
