Cervical screening

We offer cervical screening (previously known as a “smear test”) as part of the national screening programme. Between the ages of 25 and 50 years women are recommended to have cervical screening every three years, and from 50 to 64 years of age should have cervical screening every five years.

Smear tests are an excellent way of looking to see if there are any changes on the cervix which could turn into cancer. Our practice nurses are very skilled at performing these tests. If you are due a smear, please book an appointment at reception.
