Smear Tests

mother and grandmother

Cervical screening (a smear test) is a test 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. 

A common misconception about the smear tests is that is it a test for cancer. This is not true, it is a test to prevent cancer. 

To find out what the cervical screening is for, who is invited and what to expect at the appointment take a look at the NHS cervical screening infomation

If you have been affected by cervical cancer and would like to recieve some support, please see Jo's cervical cancer trust webpage.
