Cervical screening (a smear test) is a test performed by our practice nurse to check the health of the cervix and help prevent cervical cancer. It's offered to women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 64.
Currently, women aged 25-49 are invited for screening every 3 years and those aged 50-64 are invited every 5 years.
- If you're worried that you may have symptoms of cervical cancer do not wait for your next cervical screening appointment. (These symptoms may include bleeding between periods, during or after sex, or after you've been through the menopause or unusual vaginal discharge).
You should recieve a letter from the Public Health Agency when you are due for a smear test. (If you are due a smear test but do not recieve a letter you can still make an appointment with the Practice Nurse)
You can make an appointment for our smear clinics with Nurse Averil Patterson or Nurse Brenda Gormley by phoning reception from 8:30am Monday-Friday.
Please ensure your contact details are up-to date, as we will contact you via our text service if your result is normal.
