Cervical Smear Tests
Smear tests for women involve an examination of the cervix (the neck of the womb) to check for changes which occur before cancer develops. These changes can be treated and cancer prevented. We recommend that all women between the ages of 20 and 65 should have regular smear unless advised otherwise by a doctor. Smear tests are carried out by a practice nurse or doctor. You will be sent a reminder when your smear is due, but if you have any doubt please ask. Smear results will be sent to you by post.
Smears are very important, so even if you do not wish to have a smear (which is your right) please come and discuss it with your doctor and don't just ignore the letter.

We are keen to review the health of all our new patients, and also those who have not seen a doctor for several years, particularly men aged between 35 and 60.
